Hi James,
I think EP has reported a sighting of the subadult female together with BB, on 28th April. So I still have hope she will pull through. Best regards,Patrik

This is what it said: BB, the old lioness, and the sub-adult lioness of the Tsalala pride hunting impala on Safari airstrip.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for that update- we did get that this afternoon.
The problem I see is that although the older tailless female was certainly a formidable lioness in her time, she is getting old. The sub-adult lioness is forced to spend a lot of time with a past-her-prime lioness or alone.
She is still going, but how long can it last…?

Of all the posts over the last 2 years I have followed, because we were there when 4 were born and we watched them cavort, this is ABSOLUTELY the most heartbreaking news for me. They are ALL gone? All 8? 🙁

Who is the father of this lioness? Is it the Majingis? If so…Why do they chase off their own daughter?…I guess it’s part of lion behavior that’s difficult to understand.

It saddens my heart to hear the lioness is missing, I will hold on to hope and anxiously await news that she has been sighted and is fine.
