Cecil the Lion cubs

Cecil the Lion's cubs are in danger. Cecil, who was poached and beheaded by an American dentist last month, helped protect his cubs along with his brother Jericho and the pride's lioness. But one of the cubs was killed by another lion in a Zimbabwe national park, the NY Post reports.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Professional Hunters and Guides Association struck a deal with Zimbabwe national leaders to lift the ban on big game hunting that was imposed after Cecil was killed by Minnesota dentist Walter J. Palmer.

From NY Post:

Cecil was the leader of his pride, made up of three lionesses and eight cubs, at the time of his slaying by Dr. Walter Palmer in July. Palmer has been in hiding since Cecil’s slaughter was reported.

Without Cecil around, other male lions are likely to kill his cubs and mate with the female cats, experts say.

“One of the eight cubs was killed by a male lion after Cecil was killed,” a source at Hwange National Park told the Sunday Mail newspaper. http://www.sundaymail.co.zw/ “The lionesses fended off his advances but it is unlikely they can continue to protect the cubs for much longer.”

      Why do I have a feeling it was the brother that killed the cub.. real life mufasa and scar

    • eljjai

      nope brothers got each other's backs out there,if anything the brother has fled from the territory because he can't defend it alone.

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

      cant even watch Animal Planet in peace. Got the thing in the corner of the screen saying how sorry they are and folks who work that channel talmbout how pisst they are. That damn dentist just done fugged up everything.

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

      I mean cause really what type of mother is she to not be out here dying trying to protect her cubs. Just wanna run around the damn jungle and not take care of those cubs. Where her damn momma at.

    • DYmondgurl

      Killing the cubs makes the lioness come into heat faster for the new male

    • Its Me

      Let some other nigga come in and kill her baby.

      This bish.

      Cecil ain't eem been dead three weeks.

      She moving too fast.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      True. This happens all the time when either the Alpha Lion loses the territory to another lion or the Alpha dies. Another Lion comes in and kill aaalll the cubs so the lionesses can go into heat and bear his chillen...damn I watch to much Discovery and Animal Planet smh

      All them folk up in arms when Cecil got killed and naan one of em did shii to save these 'cubs'? I am not insensitive I'm just wondering why society is pretending to give two fuggs when we eat, wear and use animals daily....are we to regard ALL animals as highly as Cecil or we just expected to care about him cuz he was the KANG?

    • Buttercup

    • Buttercup

      His baby mama should've done a better job of choosing her mate. It's Cecil's mama's fault that he didn't have a strong role model because she was too loud-mouthed and unruly.

      I know there starving kids all over the world and horrible unjust killings of innocent people but can I just say I can't stand that dentist. What an arrogant entitled evil man. This lion minding its business with new seeds in a sanctuary no less and that evil dentist going to pay someone to lure it for killing. I would never trust that psychopath with anesthesia and dentist tools.

    • Hmmm~?

      Humans of every race die everyday in the US, what's your point :^)?

    • hottlanta

      Future killed the cub. He ain't gonna stand for another lion to be going around the jungle with him in a stroller embarrassing him.

    • SnootyPooty

      So sad... I hope the Cubs are able to survive

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      LOL!

    • suganspice68

      I wonder if Jimmy Kimmel will go crying again on his show about Cecil's cub being killed like how he cried over Cecil?

    • Aanelove

      Enough about the damn lions! I have heard more about lions than I have heard about the recent job losses in Zim. Pushing unemployment to 98%

    • Kim Holme

      Why have they now lifted the ban it's all down to money and pig ignorance. How many more do they want to kill before all our animals become extinct. It's not a way of life in South Africa it's all over the world that people are against this, can they not ban these psychopathic dickless killer's? Such a bloody shame and shame on people that do not have the time to sign petitions to stop this! What happened to the cubs and Jericho!
