TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

State Game & Fish officials are investigating the poaching of a mountain lion after the animal's body was found near a Colossal Cave Park campground site.

KVOA-TV reports that Arizona Game & Fish spokesman Mark Hart said Wednesday that officials have physical evidence, solid leads and persons of interest in the case.

State officials were alerted to two possible sightings of mountain lions last week and at least one cougar was found dead after it was shot multiple times.

Investigators believe the person or persons responsible for the poaching did not have justified cause. The mountain lion was not believed to have been aggressive.

Those responsible for the killing could face multiple charges.
