We have the proof that a mountain lion is living up in Griffith Park, a park surrounded by the suburbs and the Los Angeles community.
The lion known as "P22". Wildlife officials believe he traveled from the Santa Monica mountains where they think he was born, across the 405 and 101 freeways and ended up in the park.
Miguel Ordenana, Wildlife Biologist said, "The fact he made it all this way and wasn't seen or hurt and did not have any interactions with humans is a testament that these animals do not prefer to be around humans."
National Park Service biologists put a GPS collar around his neck so they can learn where he's crossing roads and freeways. They have set up remote-controlled cameras to take photographs of his activity.
Those who frequent Griffith park should be happy that we have a lion in Griffith Park sharing the space. It shouldn't pose any danger to humans because they are solitary creatures that usually avoid human contact.
