National Park Service biologist Joanne Moriarty treats mountain lion P-22 during a capture in Griffith Park.

We've spent a lot of time on talking about the mountain lions that live here in Southern California. They're facing a lot of obstacles like competition for space and mates, finding food and dodging traffic.
