P-34: Death by Rat Poison

Female | Born October 2013 | Died September 2015

Unlike her litter siblings, P-32 and P-33, this female remained in the Santa Monica Mountains. She still did make the news, though, in her own way when she was caught in a stunning photo and later that day found under a mobile home park trailer in December 2014. Again, she made headlines for a more unfortunate reason when a jogger in Point Mugu State Park found her body on the trail. A necropsy revealed that she died from rat poison, which likely moved its way up the food chain. She was born to P-12 and P-19, a case of first-order inbreeding (P-12 is also P-19’s father).
