BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota wildlife officials have confirmed the presence of a mountain lion near an elementary school in south Bismarck, though the big cat might have already moved on.

Game and Fish Department Wildlife Chief Randy Kreil says the lion was videotaped by a private trail camera west of the University of Mary in late October, and the camera's owner hasn't seen it since.

Kreil says it's not known if the big cat is still in the area. But he says there have been no reports of any livestock or pets in the area being killed.

Students at Prairie Rose Elementary were kept indoors Tuesday and an armed school resource officer was on site. School officials say students are being allowed outside again, with added adult supervision.
