Iconic LA Mountain Lion

A new celebrity took up residence in LA’s Los Feliz neighborhood yesterday. No, not T Swift or Beyonce. It was P-22, the iconic Mountain Lion who usually roams Griffith Park. A shocked homeowner found the infamous cat under his house last night. Wildlife officials were called. Tennis balls and bean bags were thrown to coax out the mountain lion. But P-22 stayed put. Until a check up early Tuesday morning found the cat had reportedly left the building, wandering out on his own accord. What’s behind P-22’s fame? And his recent adventure into residential LA?
