It has been a long morning for most but the mother of the baby that was rescued by KWS yesterday has been finally found after two false alarms.
We were first sure that she was a female that had killed a warthog at the Sheldrick elephant sanctuary but whisker pattern analysis revealed that it was her sister KF2 and her 3 cubs.
Then another report came in of two lionesses in the park. They turned out to be KF1 and KF5
According to residents of the Mukoma road area the lioness was heard calling for her cub all night. She must be very distressed at losing her cub. We are hoping that KF6 returns to the Park tomorrow with her 2 cubs and can be reunited with her third cub.
Thanks for all your help and support especially everyone at KWS and FoNNaP volunteers Bryony, Ed, Michael, Dave, Nishu, Deepak, Raabia, Lindsay, Alister, Alex, Sandy, Kim, and Lesley.
