Native tribes call for P-22 to be buried near Griffith Park

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — The final resting place of the famous mountain lion P-22 seems to raise some concerns.

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County currently holds the remains of the big cat. However, the local Native American community requests that P-22 be buried near Griffith Park with a ceremony honoring his spirit.

The museum says its decision on next steps will be made together with local tribes.

Last week, P-22 was euthanized after being arrested for a health check.

According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the mountain lion had multiple serious injuries and chronic health issues. Wildlife experts said the mountain lion was severely underweight and may have recently been hit by a vehicle.
