TUCSON, Ariz. -- Three southern Arizona men have been cited in last month's fatal shooting of a mountain lion southeast of Tucson.

Arizona Game and Fish Department officials say Richard C. Dailey, Martin Melvin Foersterling and Thayne A. LeFevere face misdemeanor charges.

The Arizona Daily Star says all three men are residents of Vail.

Authorities say Dailey was cited for illegal take of wildlife, illegal take of wildlife in a closed area and illegal method of taking wildlife by the use of a .22 caliber rifle.

Foersterling was cited for illegal take of wildlife and illegal take of wildlife in a closed area while LeFevere was charged with making a false statement to a law enforcement officer.

The adult female mountain lion was shot June 10 in Colossal Cave Mountain Park.
