You are listening to the latest news from Radio Malibu … F-M 99 point 1 K B U U.  ((( time  ))))


Well…. they don’t know how he did it … but a young male mountain managed to cross 12 lanes of freeway in Sepulveda Pass to get out of Malibu.

P-61 managed to cross over or under the massive 405 freeway sometime between the hours of 2 a-m and 4 a-m Anna July morning.

P-61 one was wearing a radio collar … but the data is not specific enough to say how he managed to cross the 405. 

Two other mountain lions have been hot by cars on the same freeway. 

Freeways in the area act as fences for the local mountain lion population, hemming them in on an island of habitat, which has led to seriously low genetic diversity levels in the Santa Monica Mountains. During the course of the study, researchers have documented numerous mountain lions traveling right up to the edge of the freeway and not crossing.

P-61 joins P-22 … the male mountain lion who made his way east from Malibu several years ago and crossed both the 405 and the 101 Freeways.

P-22 has been batching it in Griffith Park for more than seven years.

And another male mountain lion is carousing in the Beverly Hills adjacent area … between the 405 and 101 freeways. 

Surveillance camera footage occasionally surfaces with images of that lion, assuming it is the same one, dating back approximately five years.


One editors note this morning … National Park Service Ranger Kate Kuykendall is hanging up her Smokey Bear hat.

Ranger Kate as been helping KBUU and other reporters cover the Santa Monica Mountains for years.

She’s accepted a new job as a spokeswoman for the Long Beach airport.

It is not believe that any mountain lions live in Long Beach.

Good luck ranger Kate.
