A 160 pound mountain lion was reportedly killed by a man hunting deer over the weekend in the Celeste area.

Per Texas Game Wardens, the mountain lion reportedly measured over six feet in length.
 

The mountain lion walked into the hunter’s path around 4:30 pm on Saturday. He contacted the Hunt County Game Warden shortly after to make a report.

Officials were unable to confirm that this was the same mountain lion spotted near Rowlett and Princeton recently.

The hunter, from Blue Ridge, is reportedly taking the mountain lion to a taxidermist to be mounted.
