CENTERVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Missouri conservation officials have released a mountain lion that was trapped in the southeastern part of the state.

The Department of Conservation says a Reynolds County commissioner reported snaring the 122-pound cat in a live trap he set on national forest land to catch bobcats, coyotes and raccoons.

The mountain lion was taken to the Current River Conservation Area for examination and released. Officials say the animal was an estimated 2 years old, showed no signs of being held in captivity and was in excellent physical condition.

The Conservation Department does not plan to stock mountain lions but wants to learn more about those in Missouri.
