Admirers of the famous mountain lion P-22 will gather in Griffith Park on Sunday for a commemorative sunset hike, according to Los Angeles City Councilwoman Nithya Raman.

The hike is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. at the Charlie Turner Trailhead in Griffith Park, 2840 W. Observatory Road, according to Raman’s office.

The mountain lion was “compassionately euthanized” on Saturday due to a range of ailments and some serious injuries likely resulting from a car crash, officials said.

“He leaves a legacy of inspiration for activism and investment for California wildlife, but also leaves many hearts heavy across the city,” Raman wrote in announcing the planned hike Sunday.

The death of P-22 sparked sad messages from across the city and around the world.

“These were incredibly difficult days. And I myself have felt the full weight of the city of Los Angeles,” said Chuck Bonham, director of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife on Saturday. P-22 had multiple chronic illnesses, officials said.

The wayward cat, who is believed to be around 12 years old, has lived in the Griffith Park area for more than 10 years and has become a celebrity of sorts after his picture appeared in newspapers, on television and in National Geographic magazine had appeared.

The cougar was captured Monday in a Los Feliz backyard, sedated and taken for medical evaluation. The night before his arrest, an anonymous caller had reported a vehicle collision with a mountain lion a few blocks south of Griffith Park, and the P-22’s radio collar placed him nearby, officials said.
