The Lion Might Have Separated From His Mother

CDFW regional manager, Tina Bartlett feels the lion might have separated from his mother to make it on his own. However, he ended up in the city by mistake. Furthermore, she said, “This lion likely separated from its mother only recently and is out on its own for the first time trying to make its way in the world and ended up somewhere it shouldn’t be. We see this quite often with young mountain lions in California that end up in populated areas.”
