Zebra take-away

Dawn, Milo

Milo surveys the pride lands

It was a breath-takingly beautiful dawn on the 18th as our research team entered the release site. The clouds of Gweru had nestled themselves between the contours of Ngamo and blanketed the dew covered grass of Serengeti East. As we paused to take in this magnificent scene around us a billow of white smoke rose in the distance. It appeared Milo was also mesmorised by his dream-like surroundings, standing regal and proud over his pride lands, his breath dissolving into the mist.

We approached him to find the rest of the pride grumbling amongst one another whilst tucking into a fresh zebra kill.  As usual Phyre had already had her fill by this point and decided to have a roll around with some filthy cubs. Her playful antics though were not met with open arms but the vicious claws of KE4 (below).

On the 19th the pride slept off their zebra kill from the previous day in the Kruger area. Apart from a few farts and burps there really wasn’t much to report and all appeared far too fat to move.  On the 20th it appeared the lazy lions ordered a take away to their Kruger hangout as all were found in the exact same location feeding upon another zebra kill. By the afternoon any movement was out of the question and all cubs had morphed into footballs unable to even roll to sit up.
