Male Lion Club by Michael  Moss

Exeter Private Reserve, South Africa

This poor lion cub was about 3 months old. He was amongst the youngest members of the Sand River Pride. About a year after this shot was taken, the whole pride escaped from Sabi Sands during flooding. Shortly thereafter the entire pride was shot and killed because of safety for neighboring areas.

    What a beautiful shot Michael, but what a heartbreaking story. I don’t think a lot of people realise just how threatened the lion population is, so well done for highlighting it.
