It seems that the sad loss of a lion on the neighbouring ranch is not the only bad news for us at the moment. Yesterday I visited the Lion Guardians to collect their data sheets, and found out that two of them are unwell. Both Koikai and Mokoi are not able to carry out their work as Lion Guardians at the moment.
Koikai fell on some rocks while running away from an elephant when he was following some lion tracks. I took him to the clinic, where he was given some medicine and he was told that if the problem persists he should go for further checkups including an x-ray. Here is Koikai doing some filming with me.
Mokoi, another of our Lion Guardians, meanwhile has an eye infection. His right eye cannot blink at all and stays open all the time. He can’t sleep because of the pain, and I am worried that it will get worse. His father has advised him to take some herbal medicine before going to the clinic, which he has been using, but so far it has not got any better. I hope that he will take my advice and go to the clinic soon, if it persists. Here is a photo of Mokoi with one of his young children.
I hope you will join me in wishing both Koikai and Mokoi a speedy recovery. Â
