Lincoln, NE (AP) - The killing of a female mountain lion has automatically ended the year's second season in the Panhandle area where it was taken
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says the 102-pound animal was killed Wednesday in Sheridan County. The commission says the animal was about 5½ years old and didn't show any signs of recent motherhood. One of its ears had a tag from South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks.

Season 2 in the Pine Ridge Unit was scheduled to run from Feb. 15 through March 31, with a requirement to end once one female or two mountain lions total were killed.

The first season in the Pine Ridge Unit closed when two male mountain lions were killed on Jan. 2. The season is continuing in the Prairie Unit.
