Yesterday we reported that a carnivore had tried to break into a boma. Lion Guardian Ritei went to investigate and reported that it was indeed a lion that had attacked the boma, as the community had thought. He went out tracking and did not pick up a signal from any of our lions’ radio collars, so he believes this is not one of our collared animals. Below is Nemasi, a collared female.
He spent the night in the area to see if the lion would come back a second night, and he heard loud roaring in the area for the whole night. It is great news that we have another new lion around, although we must try to make sure it will not cause problems for this community. We hope that a collar can be put on, so thatÂ Ritei can keep track of its movements and warn the community of its presence.
