TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Some wildlife species that previously did not exist or were rare in Kansas, such as the puma roaming the alleys of Wichita last month, are now appearing more frequently.
Puma sightings have tended to last for decades, with increasing presence of wildlife such as elks, black bears, otters, and dasypodidae, according to a report from the Topeka Capital Journal.
Matt Peak, Kansas Wildlife Park Tourism Board, said that hunting-induced population declines for some animals have also increased significantly from very rare conditions in Kansas.
These animals include wild turkey, Canadian geese, and deer populations.
