It’s sad to have to report that yet another mountain lion has been struck and killed by a vehicle in the Santa Monica Mountains. Pretty soon we will be bereft of mountain lions.
According to the LA Times, from where I “borrowed” the above photo, she gave birth to three litters of kittens during her five and a half years of life.
Not only was she was the product of inbreeding with P-12 as her dad and granddad, but she also later mated with P-12. This is because the lions are trapped within small regions bordered by freeways and subdivisions that used to be their habitat.
