Thanks for the update, but I am sad to hear of the passing of one of the little cubs that I so fondly remember. May the remaining cub prosper!

I know we discussed this possibility when we “met” mom and one cub last Thursday, but it is still very sad to hear this conclusion from James and the staff. I suspect it never gets easier to lose a cub even though it is part of the natural order of things in the bush. Condolences to all of you who live and protect these animals.

So sad. Life is hard, but Mom is fantastic. Thanks for letting us know. Prayers for the remaining cub and Mom.

Very sad to hear, but as you say, life goes on for the remaining cub. Hoping for it’s continued prosperity.

So sad–but, on the other hand, Nature has given us the chance to watch the Young Female Mashaba grow into the magnificent creature she is meant to be. I saw her resting on a branch with her mom last March, so it is so good to know she is thriving. Hope to see her baby sibling next year!

All the more reason we will cherish our photos and time spent with this precious cub who blessed us with fond memories in such a short life.

Awe how sad. So sorry to hear that. But I understand that is nature, like it or not. But it is still hard to read.

Wow, that’s sad… But who knows there is still a chance it might be ok… At the Jaguar Project in Pantanal , Brazil, we didn’t see one of the cubs ( of a litter of 3 ) for over 2 month and also assumed it was dead only to see all three nursing a couple of weeks ago!
Hoping for the best

🙁 And, without your wonderful photos and blogs, we may have never met this cutie…so the circle of life continues, with or without our seeing it…thankful for the possibility of knowing this little one for even such a short time…
