P-43: Another Case of Infanticide
Female | Born June 2015 | Died September 2015
This young female kitten was first found in or near a den near Malibu Creek State Park in July 2015, within about a month of her birth. Her mother is P-23. She was found dead, along with a sibling unknown to the study, a couple months later. Like P-36 and P-37 before her, it is suspected that she was killed and eaten by another lion. DNA analysis showed that P-12 is the father.
