Lion Guardian Olubi reported that lions had killed a giraffe in his area of work, but he had not found a signal when using radio telemetry to track for collared lions. We went over to investigate, and Olubi and Mokoi guided us to the carcass.
The Lion Guardians could easily tell it been killed by a lion – they located some tracks and you could even see the scratch marks on the skin.
We used our telemetry gear to track from a hill in the area again, and could not pick up a signal. We hope that this means there are some new lions in the area! Olubi and Mokoi will keep track of any kills or lion tracks that they come across, so we can try to find out who these unknown lions are. And of course all our news will be reported to you on the blog!
