Remains of mountain lion known for skill in crossing freeways found in Santa Monica Mountains NRA

A mountain lion who made headlines earlier this year for his multiple freeway crossings survived the initial danger of last month's Woolsey Fire, but was found dead earlier this week, National Park Service officials said.

The remains of P-64 were discovered in a remote area of the Simi Hills that burned in the fire, which scorched 88 percent of park land in the Santa Monica Mountains. NPS biologist Jeff Sikich from the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area said the cougar had continued to move in the days after the start of the blaze and eventually "hunkered down" in a drainage area.
