A mountain lion known as P-47 was found dead March 21 in the Santa Monica Mountains, and lab results indicate he may have succumbed to poisoning from anticoagulant rodenticide, commonly known as rat poison.

P-47’s remains were discovered after his GPS collar sent out a mortality signal and NPS biologists hiked in and found him in the central portion of the mountain range with no visible wounds.
