Today is a really sad day for the Mara Lion Project. Nashipai. The first lioness that was collared in October last year, has been killed, most likely by the means of poison.
As Nashipai had 3 dependent 7 month old cubs, they have killed four lions.
I am filled with deep frustration, sadness and anger. For some of the Maasai, there is absolutely zero tolerance, and as Nashipai had killed a young cow (from finding bones), they apparently did not hesitate to immediately put out poison.
We will do our best to catch the perpetrators.
