Initial capture date: Dec. 12, 2019

P-79 was captured in the Santa Susana Mountains just hours after P-78 was collared in the central Santa Monica Mountains on Dec. 12, 2019. California Department of Fish & Wildlife officials in Simi Hills darted the young male mountain lion in the backyard of a home. He weighed about 100 pounds and is estimated to be about 2 years old. He was outfitted with a GPS radio collar and moved to nearby open space in the Santa Susana Mountains.
