State game wardens found a dead mountain lion in the Santa Monica Mountains in California.
The poor lion was caught, killed and mutilated by poachers.
He was a collared lion, having been tracked by researchers for over two years until his collar just recently stopped sending signals.
And that's when he was found.
This is the second lion to die recently in LA, the first having been killed during morning rush hour trying to cross the freeway.
