A mountain lion was found dead along the 405 Freeway near Mulholland Drive early Thursday morning, the California Highway Patrol said. Caltrans officials removed the animal at around 1 a.m. after it was discovered in the southbound lanes. The deceased puma is expected to be examined by animal experts from the Department of Fish and Wildlife. It's not clear how the animal died, but it appears the puma was struck and killed by a vehicle. The video from the scene shows the cougar was not wearing a collar.
