In rare event, mountain lion at Santa Monica Mountains NRA uses culvert to cross under busy freeway

National Park Service researchers have documented a rare case of a mountain lion crossing the 101 Freeway at Liberty Canyon in Agoura Hills and say the incident underscores the area’s importance as the future location for a wildlife bridge over the busy highway.

An adult male mountain lion known as P-64 was captured on Boeing property at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory in Simi Valley on Feb. 28 and outfitted with a tracking collar, the National Park Service said. The following day, the cougar headed south and surprised researchers by crossing underneath the 101 using an existing culvert.
