HI Kevin


Any other information about them - number, age sex? We are currently
involved with the BDF Animal Park and APU training Unit which is very
bloated. However, we are looking at other possiblies of extending the

Hi Everyone,


As you might read below, some residents of the Hainaveld region have
discovered that there are orphaned lion cubs at Tsau gate. I was wondering
if anyone had good suggestions of what could be done with them. If you have
any ideas please contact the DWNP in Ghanzi ( I have a number for the
research office 6595465), the Maun DWNP vet 7445 4694, or directly at Tsau
gate  653 0086.


I do understand that the DWNP are in control and will make the final
decision, but they will have very few options, and if we can offer some good
ones, then maybe a good outcome could arise. I think the best case scenario
here might be a stay at Mokolodi (Gabs) for a few months, health checkup
etc, and perhaps to go to one of the lion orphan raising places in Zimbabwe?
These seems like a better option then a zoo, or one of the caged collections
around Botswana. Any other better options?


I think acting soon would be in the best interest of the cubs. Humans have
already interfered here, so even researchers shouldn't feel we have to stay
out of this.

Hi Kevin


I don't know if you are still in Botswana,I have e mailed Lars as well,but I
got an auto reply that he would only be back in the office on the 3rd.


We were told by Fanie from Hana mining,that there are 3 orphan cubs +- 3
months old,being held in a small cage at Tsau gate.

Apparently they were found by Wildlife in the C.K.G.R sitting next to their
dead mother. They were captured and brought to their camp at Tsau gate a
while ago.


Fanie was there on Wednesday,and he says they have got food and water,but
they are very dirty and don't have much space to move around in.

He asked them what was going to happen to them?and they said that they were
waiting for a decision from Wildlife in Ghanzi.


We are very concerned about their well being,and were hoping that you are
still here or that you can contact someone to go and check up on them and
maybe help find them a better home to go to,or you can please give me
contact details of someone we can

get hold of via e mail.


Hoping to hear from you soon!





Ps,Did you ever find out what happened to Mogotho? We have still not seen
him or his brother. Dolly and 3 of her big cubs came back last month,and we
are very happy that at least 3 of them survived. They are all in very good
condition,just a bit worried about the 2 male cubs, as a new mature male
started coming here about 2 weeks ago,at this stage they are keeping a low
profile when he is around.
