A mountain lion that killed a Chihuahua on its leash after quietly stalking a dog walker in the Hollywood Hills earlier this month is the famed big cat P-22, the National Park Service confirmed Monday.
For over a decade, the puma has captivated Angelenos, recorded by doorbell and security cameras while strolling in and around Griffith Park and on residential sidewalks. With the large radio tracking collar around his neck, P-22 is instantly recognizable as he roams the hills. But the feline celebrity recently reminded the world that he’s still a wild animal.
P-22 killed the Chihuahua as it was walking on a leash with a dog walker on Nov. 9, according to the National Park Service, which monitors mountain lions living in the region.
“Based on video footage and GPS tracking collar data, we know P-22 was the animal responsible for the attack,” the agency said in a statement on Monday
