Yesterday, on my morning walk, I tracked some lion prints, and found the Mwamba-Kaingo pride which was on a buffalo kill.
Next to the kill however was another two dead cubs. After talking with my colleague Meyam who had also seen the scene, we concluded that the Mwamba-Kapanda pride must have been the ones to kill the buffalo, during the night, and was chased again by the bigger-older females of the Mwamba-Kaingo pride.
Those cubs must have been left behind and left with the same fate as their little brothers and sisters from 10 days ago.
Again the Mwamba-Kapanda moved into the wrong turf, killed a buffalo but the price they paid was too high. The story about survival , betrayal and competition continues.
We have not lost 4 out of the 7 cubs of the Mwamba-Kapanda pride. Let’s hope they were the last ones to go.
Pictures of the dead cubs found near the buffalo kill, and the lionesses who most likely killed them.
