Authorities say a mountain lion found dead on a Southern California freeway may have been struck and killed while crossing the road
LOS ANGELES — Another mountain lion was found dead Wednesday on a Southern California freeway, prompting autthorities to say it was likely the latest of nearly two dozen cougars who have been struck while trying to cross roads that ring their territory.
The mountain lion was found dead on Interstate 101 in Calabasas, the California Highway Patrol tweeted.
The area is northwest of Los Angeles in the Santa Monica Mountains, home to a number of mountain lions that are considered endangered because the region is hemmed in by roads and urban development.
