Lions on the Prowl

The Black Dam pride consists now of 3 large females, their 4 cubs (10 months old) and two males who are sometimes around, sometimes not. While watching them one evening, they got the scent of a herd of wildebeest further down the road and the pride went into hunt mode.

 The females split off from the cubs and surrounded the herd, but the wildebeest were too alert for them, and the lions were seen. They gave up on the hunt and did what lions do best, went to sleep. Maybe another time they will be more successful.
