He’s the unofficial mascot of Los Angeles who has survived crossing two of the nation’s busiest freeways, ingesting rat poison, and living in an urban area among the Hollywood elite. The mountain lion, named P-22, was likely born in the Santa Monica Mountains but made the 40-mile journey to Griffith Park, where he roams an area bordered by freeways and is unlikely to ever see a mate. Images of the handsome cougar have been seen on countless security videos, a National Geographic spread, and in documentaries.
