The five-year-old mountain lion known as P-54 was struck and killed on Las Virgenes Road last Friday at approximately 9:30 am. The big cat was hit between Piuma Road and Mulholland Highway. The female is the 29th to be killed by a vehicle in the Santa Mountains Recreation Area ongoing study. Her mother was also killed by a car in January 2018 around the same area. P-54’s 18-month-old baby, P-97, was also hit by a car in the southbound lanes of the 405 near the Getty Center. P-54 will be taken to the California Animal Health and Food Safety Lab in San Bernardino for a necropsy.
