NNP Loses a Lioness (and so do We)

This is a lioness known as Gammyleg (owing to an injured hind leg) who I have known for the past few years.

She was a superb huntress & despite her disability raised 3 cubs (2 females & a male) to adulthood.

As far as I know  a lioness & the male were lost (probably on  noctournal suburban expeditions.)

She was also a regular in camp & used to wander through in the daytime from time-to-time, seemingly quite used to people….

A typical NNP lion, she was often seen outside the park, especially at night.

Her downfall came when she wandered onto the Magadi Road a few nights ago & was hit by a speeding vehicle……

My son Ned prayed for this lioness when she died. RIP Gammy…..

Below with the last surviving lioness of her family (let’s hope she’ll have cubs soon……..)
