P-36 and P-37: Infanticide
Females | Born February 2015 | Both Died February 2015
As soon as we got to know this female and her sister, they were gone. As mother P-23 was away from the den, P-27 entered it and ate them both. Why exactly is unknown. To put P-23 into estrus? Their father, P-12, is P-27’s main male competitor in the Santa Monica Mountains. That’s just one theory, though. Truly understanding why may take some time.
