Lion Guardian Mokoi has finally located collared male Kasayio, who he found in the company of two other lions. Kasayio is one of those shy lions who will never show his face. But on this day, Mokoi and I were able to see one of Kasayio’s comrades, a young male that we have never encountered before.
He is probably two to two and a half years old, judging by the development of his mane. Mokoi had to warn the community because he knows Kasayio killed a cow in December in Lion Guardian Kapande’s area, so we knowÂ he has a taste for livestock. We are crossing our fingers until these lions move out of the area as they are very close to people’s settlements at the moment, and we don’t want any conflicts between the local people and these handsome young males.
