This young female mountain lion was captured in late June 2019. She was discovered in a tree at a Pacific Palisades mobile home park. A resident called 911 and the Los Angeles Police Department secured the scene. The young cat was safely tranquilized and removed by California Department of Fish & Wildlife officers and NPS biologists. The lion was outfitted with a GPS radio collar and ID tag in each ear. After the tranquilizer wore off, she was released back into the Santa Monica Mountains.
At the time of her capture, she weighed approximately 50 lbs.
