Cougar Stars In La Role Living Near Hollywood Sign

HT natgeo cougar 1 jtm 131115 16x9 608 Cougar Stars in LA Role Living Near Hollywood Sign As ABC News previously reported , P-22 is the name given to a cougar who has been living in Griffith Park, located in central Los Angeles. Griffith Park is the home to popular tourist destinations including the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory. According to photojournalist Steve Winter, the cougar had to cross two highways in order to make his home there. Winter has been tracking the animal for over a year, and now National Geographic is prepared to release several of his spectacular photos of the creature leading up to their December issue.
