Nebraska officials say a mountain lion was unintentionally killed in a cable restraint trap in Scotts Bluff County.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says the lion killed Wednesday was a female that weighed approximately 81 pounds. The trapper immediately contacted authorities.

Officials say an increased effort to trap bobcats may have contributed to the incidental capture.

Game and Parks asks fur harvesters to immediately contact the agency if a mountain lion is unintentionally trapped.
