Here's a link to the Kansas City Star's first story on the mountain lion. It was struck crossing I-35 near Parvin Road in the northland:

This follow-up story includes the report that the mountain lion had hairs in its intestines that resemble deer hairs:

When I was very small, our vet told stories about losing several lambs off his farm near Kearney over a short period of time. Then he found a large set of tracks that would fit a big cat. There were also rumors, not too long before or after that, of a mountian lion being seen lounging on a hay bale near Liberty Hospital (north of Kansas City). You never know where one might turn up... That would make birding around here a little bit more interesting, wouldn't it?
