The most recent mountain lion to be killed on a Southern California freeway was apparently hit by a car while fleeing for his life.
P-61 was run over and killed on the 405 Freeway near Getty Center on September 7th.
Video shot by surveillance cameras shows two mountain lions … apparently fighting and going up a tree … at 3:09 in the morning.
About 20 minutes later, both lions are seen coming down the tree … one after the other.
Another camera spotted one of the big cats … P-61… wearing a collar … running quickly alongside the 405 Freeway near the Getty Center.
At the same time … a mountain lion without a collar walks briskly toward Sepulveda Boulevard under the 405.
That animal heads toward the other mountain lion.
P-61 made it across at least five lanes of northbound 405 traffic … but was hit and killed in the southbound lanes.
Just part of nature … says Jeff Sikich … the a biologist studying the mountain lions in the Santa Monica Mountains.
He tells the L-A Times “this is what male mountain lions instinctively do, and it did not end up in P-61’s favor,”
And in Santa Monica … that big parking lot at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium is about to disappear.
Three construction projects will completely consume the surface lot.
There’s a nursery school run by the college district next to Santa Monica High.
The City recently broke ground on construction of a new athletic field at the corner of 4th and Pico.
And in November … Santa Monica will install a new water recycling project on the rest of the parking lot.
That 92 million dollar project The Sustainable Water Infrastructure Project (SWIP) will create a single water recycling system that will convert stormwater, salted groundwater and municipal wastewater into about 1.5 million gallons per day of treated water to be used for irrigation, street cleaning, groundwater recharging and toilet flushing.
