The Case of the Koala Killer at the Los Angeles Zoo

Sometime between the evening of March 2nd and March 3rd, a killer took the life of Killarney, the Los Angeles Zoo’s oldest koala. Zoo officials discovered a tuft of her hair down the road from the koala enclosure, and a more grisly discovery a bit further along.

And when they counted the residents of the enclosure, 14-year-old Killarney was nowhere to be found. The most likely culprit? P-22, Griffith Park’s beloved mountain lion.
