During an early morning monitoring session in Tembe Elephant Park the wildlife volunteers and I found the young Southern male lions (Umbali and Duma) walking the section of their territory where they have conflict with the two larger NE males. The two lions showed immense interest in the vehicle as we were transporting a bait which had been used in a call-up the previous evening. We had to take some evasive action as there is little a lion likes more than free food. They are known to scavenge more kills from other predators than hyena in some systems – nice being the Top Dog….erhm….cat!
