FREER, Texas — A 143-pound mountain lion was shot by a hunter this weekend on a ranch in Freer, Texas. It was so large, the ranch owner decided to stop off at the Muy Grande Deer Contest & Country Store to show it off.
According to Kenneth Sharber at Muy Grande, who snapped a photo with the massive mountain lion, it was shot on Saturday by a lease hunter on John Walker's ranch. The cat was reportedly seen approaching a feeder when it was shot.
Walker took the 143-pound mountain lion to Muy Grande the very next day so Sharber could get a look at it.
