P-8: Instraspecific Conflict - Death by Older Brother

Male | Born August 2004 | Died September 2006

Biologically speaking, P-8 was the fittest of the litter of four between P-1 and P-2. After he dispersed when his mother was killed by his father he took to the eastern end of the Santa Monicas (his brother, P-5, went westward). P-8 was noted as the largest in the litter. Researchers thought he could end up surviving into adulthood, a notion shattered when his older brother, P-9, killed him in the fall of 2006.
