There are a little over 100 Desert Lions that remain today.
On #WorldLionDay Tragedy has struck the 4 Remaining Musketeers (Desert Lions)
In June of this year, Musketeer Harry was shot and killed by farmers due to HWC (Human Wildlife Conflict)
Today news is coming in regarding the 4 Musketeers that remain…..
They are NO LONGER and this again is because of HWC.
HWC is a reality and it needs to be controlled and the only way it can be is if people come together for these Lions so that funds are raised for Kaarl/Bomas, collars, solar lights with sirens to keep controlling the HUMAN LION CONFLICT
If it is was not bad enough that these 5 brothers lost the 1st Musketeer (Harry who was shot and killed this past June by farmers) they have to try and survive in one of the most harshest places on Earth ~ The Namib Desert , while dealing with farmers and their cattle which are pretty much taking over any place where there are lions today.
News coming in today that 3 of the remaining 4 musketeers have been poisoned by Farmers and their bodies and their satellite collars have been burnt….
The remaining Musketeer Xpl-93 has now been relocated to a different area, and I cannot imagine how he will grieve for his brothers not to mention adjust and able to survive in unknown territory…..
