Mlima the female cheetah started to show her three cubs over the weekend for the first time. Rangers have been monitoring them daily but yesterday one lioness from Egyptian goosepride tried to attack them repeatedly. Mlima was brave enough to fight off the lioness the whole day, at one point she almost slapped the lioness’ face trying to protect the cubs. However we are sad to announce that lioness got to one of the cubs in the late evening hours. Mlima and her remaining two cubs have not been seen today. We hope they are not killed and just moved away.
