There's a bit of a backstory to this mountain lion on display in the Monrovia Canyon Park nature center. Some people say it's true, some say no way.

Rumor has it that this mountain lion was in an old Cal Worthington commercial as Cal's dog "Spot". Those of you that were around back then will remember the wide variety of animals (except a dog) that were part of his commercials and that he introduced as "my dog Spot".

I have no idea whether it's true or not. If anyone can put this controversy to rest, please let us know.

We call him "Spot" now regardless.
