Los Angeles wildlife officials have euthanized a Los Angeles mountain lion known as the “Hollywood cat” after a thorough medical evaluation showed the animal had multiple serious injuries and chronic health problems, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.


Wildlife officials said the lion was seized for a medical examination after noticing signs of possible illness distress, according to CNBC News. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the National Park Service said in a joint statement at the time: He was sedated with sedative darts in the nearby Los Feliz neighborhood, and a comprehensive assessment of Assad found significant trauma to his head, right eye and internal organs, confirming the suspicion of a recent injury, such as a car crash.

And the statement continued: “The examination also revealed pre-existing diseases, such as “irreversible kidney disease, chronic weight loss, severe parasitic skin infection throughout the body and localized arthritis.” The statement revealed that in light of the animal’s condition, the medical team unanimously recommended Euthanasia under general anesthesia, and they took the decision and ended Assad’s life.
