On the evening of June 25, a member of the public spotted the lion as it struggled to cross the road and immediately reported the injured animal to Fish and Game. The lion was quickly dispatched and further inspection of the animal revealed multiple gunshot wounds that appeared to have been inflicted several days prior.
