SD27 | After Legislators Call for Urgent Action, State Officials Take Control of Depredation Process, Promise “All-Inclusive Strategy” on Mountain Lion Extinction Threat

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has taken control of the statewide mountain lion depredation process and promised an “all-inclusive strategy” in response to a letter from the chairs of key environmental committees calling for a comprehensive solution to the Southern California mountain lion extinction crisis.

“P-56’s tragic death is a devastating blow to the survival of our mountain lions, and there must be accountability for his death. The path to extinction will not respect government processes and legislative timelines – the time to act is now, before we lose these noble creatures forever,” said Senator Stern. “I applaud CDFW for their swift action – but we need the public’s help if we’re going to solve the whole problem, from restricting deadly rodenticides to building wildlife overpasses across our state.”
