Depredation permit issued for mountain lion P-45 who killed alpacas issued to Victoria, Joseph Vaughn Perling

UPDATE: 12/13/2016 Building and safety was at the property yesterday. There is a "no trespassing" sign on the front. Inspector is not allowed to go beyond a no trespassing sign. Ron Dockery (818) 880-4150 x281 said he has a large file on that property. He worked with the previous owner which was an old man who died. Victoria bought it in probate. He referred me to regional planning which enforces coastal commission, zoning, planning and health dept. 213 974 6483. He told me to forward any complaints to that department.

12/02/2016 I just found photos and video of the alpaca farm. The farm is in deplorable condition! I'm shocked the woman allowed the press to see this filthy, unsafe and totally unsecured property. I see no barn or permanent protection from rain, sun, wind and cold. That "fence" is flimsy and wouldn't keep out a small child. Their corral is basically a bunch of trash. This explains why the alpacas are muddy. Their hooves must be kept dry and clean. I also see overgrown teeth. If their lower teeth don't line up with the upper palate area they will over grow and need trimming.

The neighbor Phillips is not rational, neither is Victoria. They complain that the government must protect their alpacas from mountain lions. If they are going to keep alpacas in mountain lion country they should at least provide them with a secure enclosure. They were begging to have the mountain lion kill their alpacas. These people are very irresponsible animal people. They also lied about having barbed wire, security cameras, lights.... You wouldn't leave a wad of cash on the sidewalk and expect the government to protect your money. Why leave these poor defenseless animals unprotected in the mountains.

Finally major attention seeker Victoria Vaughn Perling and her mean spirited, threatening attorney had yet another press conference at her Alpaca selling ranch in Malibu. She stated she will agree to get predator proof caging. She won't kill P 45. She makes it sound like she's doing all of us a very big favor from the bottom of her "caring" heart. Any sane person can clearly see that killing one specific mountain lion will not prevent others from eating your animals that you leave unprotected in a corral. The woman has shown herself to be a careless, lying attention seeker who only cares about money. She is in store for some upcoming reality checks. She should not have shown this light upon her unlicensed, unpermitted business operating from a site that has no occupancy permit, utilities, potable water or legal structures.

It seems when Victoria filed for divorce earlier this year she had her husband sign over the property to her alone.

Here is Victoria at her press conference this morning.

Here is video from tonight's meeting. Everyone loves P 45 except Victoria.

And the story changes again. Victoria already hired a hunter to track and kill P 45 per Fish & Wildlife. "Hughan confirmed that a depredation permit had, in fact, been issued to the rancher and that she had already "hired an agent to make the attempt."" She never wanted to save it. A liar.

She said she had security cameras to protect the alpacas. How does that work with mountain lions? She said she had barbed wire and adequate fencing. No, she didn't. The property has no legal utilities. She said there was a loud radio. Again, no utilities. This is her place. She allowed her alpacas to be killed. She should be cited for animal neglect. Coyotes could easily get into this enclosure. As I looked on satellite image there was no protection from sun, rain, wind, no adequate water.

She changed her story again. Victoria through her attorney Reid Breitman just threatened to kill P-45 if she doesn't get a trapping permit. She also thinks she will send P 45 to Wildlife Waystation. The Waystation lost their Fish & Wildlife permits, are not allowed to take in new animals. They also have no room or money.

“It is only a matter of time when someone will get a kill permit, and successfully kill P-45,” Vaughn-Perling said. The statement added that the law firm of Vaughn-Perling’s attorney, Reid Breitman, would cover the cost of the relocation. But, it warned, Vaughn-Perling “will proceed with killing this lion if she is not given a permit to relocate it within the next few days.”

Victoria Vaughn-Perling has changed her story. We don't care that she's lying. We're just happy that she won't be killing P-45 after she recevied many polite emails and phone calls. She asked for permit to kill it. There is no permit to trap and relocate and she didn't ask for one. It's illegal to trap and relocate healthy nuisance wildlife. We need P-45 in that area breeding if our local mountain lion species is to survive.

 Another website said these are her dead alpacas. Look at that fence! It's four feet high in that area.

Victoria Vaughn-Perling said in a news release that she was recently issued a permit to kill Mountain Lion P-45 with a gun within 10 days. She said the lion has killed 20 alpacas and at least 65 other animals belonging to neighbors in the last eight months. She wants the state to issue her a permit to trap, tranquilize and transport the mountain lion to an animal sanctuary.

"I obtained the kill permit in order to save P-45's life," said Vaughn-Perling in a news release. "P-45 has been very aggressive and active in the area, and a kill permit was issued by the Department of Fish & Wildlife earlier this year to another neighbor about a mile away. That resulted in P-45 being wounded by a rifle shot, but fortunately he survived. It is only a matter of time when someone will get a kill permit, and successfully kill P-45."

We contacted all the alpaca ranches in the area to find out which one suffered the loss. We offered our services to help them build predator proof fencing. It was NOT the Gomez ranch. They stated "We haven't lost animals and will not kill a lion.  We use loud noisy dogs, and motion lights.  We've been here 19 yrs without any attacks." Hunters have been contacting the ranches offering their services. Gomez said they would never hire a hunter or kill a mountain lion.

We believe but are not 100% certain that MalibuAlpaca.com is the ranch that got the depredation permit. We emailed them offering to help with predator proof enclosures. This is most likely the ranch https://www.openherd.com/farms/7160 They are Victoria and Joseph Vaughn-Perling, 33477 Mulholland, Malibu, CA 90265.

The property had a shack on it which the county said was not livable or up to code. The property was bought in foreclosure as is with $150K of mandatory repairs. The well water is tainted. They were ordered to repair the property but there are no permits showing any work was done. No one can live on the property.

Here are the owners of this property. They claim to be alpaca ranchers and animal lovers.

They had an illegal airbnb rental for a while. As the structure isn't legal or livable, that's illegal. I believe they also outlawed airbnb in Malibu, not positive. Their ad is gone. The MLS stated the well water was tainted yet they said it was fine. There are no permitted repairs or occupancy permit on this property.

I contacted these people to confirm the permit, their information and their plans. I told them if they didn't reply I would assume everything I sent them is correct. Below is their public info from who.is

This is from LinkedIn. The husband is a cryptologist. Wife is a hypnotist. They state this is their alpaca farm. It's illegal to run a business from this location. The property is not connected to utilities. Per the MLS the well is tainted. It's a 528 sf one room, bath shack.

They live at 4908 Calle Robleda, Agoura Hills, CA 91301 in a 5+3 they bought in 2003 for $650,000. The wife owns it, not the husband.

Here is MLS on the property. These California Coastal Commission, Los Angeles County Building and Safety and other violations were never cured. I just looked at title. A road runs through her property cutting it in half. Her property can't be accessed from Mulholland legally. Other neighbors have rights to pass through her property to get to theirs.

None of these issues were ever corrected.





Seems they are getting divorced. That means that Victoria alone requested the depredation kill permit.

Within the last six months Malibu mountain lion P-45 has killed and eaten some llamas and goats. In the most recent incident over the weekend it’s believed that P-45 killed 11 alpacas and didn’t eat them. Sometimes with young mountain lions like P-45 if they see lots of prey they go into a killing frenzy and kill them all. That is what most likely happened at an alpaca ranch in Malibu.

Earlier this year P-45 killed alpacas at the nearby alpaca ranch of attorneys Wendell Phillips and Mary Dee Rickards at 33173 Mulholland Hwy Malibu, CA 90265. They also raise alpacas to sell. Phillips got a depredation permit and hunted P-45. Phillips stated he saw P-45 and shot him but the bullet only grazed him. The permits are only good for ten days.

Mountain lions are protected in California. They can only be killed with a depredation permit, in self defense or for public safety.  In this situation killing P-45 doesn’t solve the problem. A new mountain will take over the territory and continue to kill farm animals until those animals are better protected. A mountain lion would prefer to kill a corralled alpaca over a wild deer as it’s much easier.

The main reason more farm animals are being killed is that many more people are raising alpacas and llamas. It was illegal to have them until we got an amendment to County zoning to allow wildlife rehabilitation in 2006. At the same time they added the keeping of llamas and alpacas on agriculture property due to demand.

We have reached out to the alpaca ranches in the area. One of our partners builds amazing enclosures for wolves and other animals. These enclosures are mountain lion and coyote proof. We’re hoping we can help the ranchers build better enclosures. Based on the photos the corral is made of low, flimsy material. While it is electrified a mountain lion could easily jump over it which is what happened.

In the meantime there will be a meeting to talk about the issues at 7:00 p.m. November 30, 2016 at the NPS Paramount Ranch movie set, 2903 Cornell Road, Agoura Hills, CA. This ranch was owned by the father of Mary Dee Rickards who used it as a Western movie set. We’d love to send someone to the meeting but our volunteers who do presentations are either too far away or sick. We know the Fish & Wildlife, Parks Dept, Santa Monica Conservancy and other groups who will be going and speaking about the issue.

We’ll keep everyone apprised of the situation with updates.

UPDATE: We just sent the following email to the ranches in the area.

"We're very sorry to hear about the loss of your alpacas. We are Fish & Wildlife permitted wildlife rehabilitators in Los Angeles. We are the group which got the amendment to zoning to allow the keeping of llamas and alpacas in Los Angeles in 2006.

We rehabilitate coyotes, bobcats ... and down to bats. Our enclosures must keep these animals in. For that reason we know they will keep the same animals out. Our facilities are in mountain lion country yet we've never lost an animal to a mountain lion. The reason is because our enclosures are predator proof.

One of our friends is Lockwood Animal Sanctuary in Lockwood, California. The husband of the team Matthew Simmons builds amazing enclosures. You should contact him about building enclosures to protect your animals from predators. Here is his email address ****@lockwoodarc.org Their enclosures are each a few acres in size in a hilly area. We highly recommend them.

If you do kill P-45, another mountain lion will take over his territory. Because it's easier to kill a corralled alpaca than a wild deer, the killings will continue unless you protect your animals. When some young mountain lions see corralled animals they kill them all at once in a frenzy and may only eat one.

Please, contact Matt and ask him about predator proof enclosures. They don't have to have roofs if you build them properly. You can incorporate the trees and natural surroundings in the enclosures so you don't see the fencing."
