(KNX 1070) -- Four mountain lion cubs have been discovered in the Santa Monica Mountains.

Kate Kuykendall with the National Park Service says this latest case underscores the need for improved crossing over the 101 freeway in the Agoura Hills area.

The two males and two females are likely the results of inbreeding believed to be the litter of momma cat, P-19, and her grandson. 

Kuykendall says just over $3 million  has been raised for the crossing with the goal of hitting $10 million by the end of the year.
