Another mountain lion photograph is circulating the Internet. The question is, are there mountain lions near Mulvane? Good question.

One picture is of a giant mountain lion allegedly shot by a man near Leon, Kansas. Turns out, the big cat in the picture was killed in Seattle, Washington. As with most hoax emails, the pic is real, but the story is not.

The latest mountain lion pic jamming e-mail in-boxes is of big cats lining up at a deer buffet. As many as three cougars are shown in the pictures. The e-mail says they were taken by a trail camera southeast of Mulvane.

There is even a date and time stamp that says October 9th, 2008, just before 8 o'clock in the evening.

The best answer is that the pictures are real, but the claim that they were taken near Mulvane is a hoax.
