Aaron Anderson of Linn Grove caught the image of a mountain lion on his field camera. The animal skulks along the edge of a cornfield in successive shots taken at 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 31. He checked the camera Tuesday, Sept. 5 and discovered the picture.

The field is a deer food plot on a ridge top about 400 yards from the Little Sioux River. It’s not where Anderson lives. Anderson said he wanted to keep the exact location a secret to discourage anyone from “trying to figure out how to kill it or those that wish to hug it.”
