P-25: A Mysterious Death

Female | November 2011 | Died October 2012

This female was only studied for less than two months. First discovered by a remote camera in 2012 south of Westlake Village, she and her brother P-26 were captured in August of that year at an estimated age of 10 months. She was found dead two months later by a hiker. Her body had likely been there for at least a week and was too decomposed for researchers to gain insight into her death from a necropsy. Although evidence of rat poison was found in her body, cause of death is officially listed as unknown. Her parents are P-12 and P-13, parents of at least two other litters (P-17 through P-19 and P28 through P31).
