In rarity, mountain lion from Santa Monica Mountains NRA manages to cross I-405

The male mountain lion known as P-61 has successfully crossed the 405 freeway, an extremely rare passage for Santa Monica Mountains cougars hemmed in by freeways and the ocean, the National Park Service announced Thursday.

The GPS-collared lion, thought to be about 4-years-old, crossed the massive freeway in the Sepulveda Pass area in the predawn hours of July 19, the park service said.
