A mountain lion known to roam the Griffith Park area appears to be improving in health, based on newly captured photos.

There was concern earlier this year that the mountain lion had developed a skin disorder known as mange, which is often blamed on exposure to rat poison.

However, it looks like P-22 has recovered. The photos were taken Nov. 21 using a remotely triggered camera.
