Three Vail men have been cited in connection with the shooting death of an adult female mountain lion June 10 in Colossal Cave Mountain Park southeast of Tucson.

Richard C. Dailey, Martin Melvin Foersterling and Thayne A. LeFevere face a variety of misdemeanor charges in the case, said Mark Hart, spokesman for the Arizona Game and Fish Department.

Hart said Dailey was cited for illegal take of wildlife, illegal take of wildlife in a closed area and illegal method of taking wildlife, involving the illegal use of a .22 caliber rifle.

Maximum penalties for the misdemeanors are four months in jail and a $750 fine, Hart said.

He said Foersterling was cited for illegal take of wildlife and illegal take of wildlife in a closed area.

LeFevere was charged with making a false statement to a law enforcement officer, Hart said. He couldn’t immediately provide information on the maximum possible penalty.
