LOS ANGELES, Calif. - A car struck and killed a California mountain lion on the 405 freeway and the Sepulveda pass early Saturday morning.
The National Park Service identified the 4-year-old lion as P-61. The GPS collar shows the animal was hit between Bel Air Crest Road and the Sepulveda Blvd underpass.
The same crossed the freeway there a couple months ago.
Male lions were also hit by cars in the same area in 2011 and 2009.
An effort is underway to build a wildlife crossing in the Santa Monica mountains.
