P-63: Simi Hills Subadult
Male | Born around December 2016 | Alive
When the Woolsey Fire broke out on November 9, 2018, P-63, a young male mountain lion, was actually a little bit north of the flames in the Simi Hills. In the year that we've been following him, he's actually moved between the Simi Hills and the Santa Monica Mountains, though we don't know how he is managing to get across (or under) the 101 Freeway. He crossed back south into the Santa Monica Mountains in December and has been spending the majority of his time in the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains. Our biologist recently recaptured him to replace his radio-collar and reported that he is looking good and had many healed wounds that are common to find on males that resulted likely from territorial fights. Besides the recently deceased P-64 (likely his father!), he is the only cat we are currently tracking that has moved back and forth between both sides of the freeway!
