09/12/2019 More info on the shooting. Alfredo Gonzalez worked and lived at the camp. He cared for the animals on the property such as goats, horses...It is not illegal to kill a mountain lion if the person is acting in self-defense or in the defense of others, the code states. I assume that will be his argument. Unless there were witnesses, court may buy that. Seems Alfredo cut off the collar and left it miles away. That makes him look guilty.

09/11/2019: Alfredo Gonzalez born January 12, 1959 was charged with shooting and killing a mountain lion and vandalizing its tracking collar. Alfredo P Gonzalez was living, working at Camp Alonim a Jewish Summer Camp in Brandeis, California. His address is the address of the camp 1101 Pepper Tree Lane. It appears he killed the big cat because of a human wildlife conflict. The Jewish Center and Camp has promised the California Department of Fish & Wildlife that they will work with the Department to deal with any future human wildlife conflicts. It sounds to me like the Camp told Gonzalez to kill the cat whom they felt was a threat to the children. I sent questions to the Jewish Center and Camp and received no response.

Below is from the court record. The charges are California Department of Fish & Game code 4800 b 1 illegal take of a mountain lion and California Penal Code 594(b)(1) vandalism over $400. His first appearance is October 9, 2019 at 9:00 am Court rm 11 in Ventura County Superior Court.

"CRIMINAL CHARGES FILED FOR KILLING OF MOUNTAIN LION

VENTURA, California - District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced today the filing of criminal
charges against Alfredo Gonzalez (DOB: 01/12/59), of Simi Valley, for the killing of a protected
mammal, namely a mountain lion known as P-38, and for the vandalism to its collar. National Park
Service (NPS) biologists studying the population have collected GPS-enabled radio collar data to study mountain lions for more than a decade. P-38 was a male mountain lion born in 2012. First collared in 2015, this animal predominantly roamed portions of the Santa Susana Mountains.

On July 10, 2019, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife received a report from the NPS that
collared mountain lion P-38 may have been killed in Simi Valley after a mortality signal was detected
on July 2, 2019. It was ultimately determined that the mountain lion died of a gunshot wound to the
head. It is unlawful to kill a mountain lion without a permit from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Gonzalez will be arraigned on October 9, 2019, in courtroom 11 of the Ventura Superior Court, County of Ventura, located at 800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura, 93003."
