I hope she makes it. She appears thin. I wonder if she is a lone lioness. How unusual for males to maul and attack a female instead of trying to mate. I hope she moves onward into another area and meets a mate who wants to start a pride with her. Thank You for all your hard work !!

Hi Katy
This female is just too young to be mated with so the males still see her as a “cub” that they obviously don’t believe carries their genes – their natural instinct is to kill such cubs. If she can just hang on for a few more months though then she should be ready to mate and the males behaviour towards her should change. Unfortunately for now, the males don’t have the foresight to look look that far ahead!

It makes me wonder if BB died trying to protect her. There were reports of BB and her with the Tsalala breakaway females and maybe they turned on the sub-adult and BB got caught in the crossfire.

It does seem strange that the males are very friendly with the Eyerfield sub-adults-even though most of those are males? Perhaps behavior of females??

Where were her mother and aunt? They will need to help her now that her grandma is gone.

It looked to me from these photos that she had the upper hand.. she looked to get a beaut bite in his head..I thought it would be enough to get him to back off and not try another attempt but unfortunately he was still looking determined to take her down. I hope she will be ok and hope she gets support from others

I hate to see lions fighting each other. I wish there were some kind of Lion Brotherhood, so lions don’t fight each other and don’t kill the cubs. They should combine force to kill more hyenas, elephants, buffalos, hippos, and rhinos.
