There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Doesn't make much sense to me why they choose to make a decision to seperate, which is not left to nature, its humans making choices that only nature should make. IMHO, they should have left them together wherever they relocated them to. I understand they had to be relocated but, separated? Yeah, doesn't make sense.

Throwback At Nkhulu area in Kruger NP  back to 2015 .

The 3 males who become a  Mazithi pride males in early 2016 with thier old Father and likely thier sister a young female .

These boyes are succsefull left a big legecy like the 3 Mazirhi/Tshokwane males and the Trecharted males and some around Tshokwane picnice spot .

Not to mention their daughters born into all the groups that were theirs and may still be theirs.  Because some will come and say that the offspring will be cut off if the male offspring die. I do not agree with your opinion, dear. As long as there are female offspring, this offspring will continue for a specified period.

I very rarely question the guys who make these choices as their job is difficult and alot goes on that we as the general public are not aware of but in this case I am left rather bewildered myself. I have no idea the logic behind it. I could possibly understand a separation with both being placed in the north as it has a lower population density but Tshokwane has no such paucity in numbers. I simply cannot fathom it.

The only thing I can think of is that they had two areas that needed new blood that they felt a single male in his prime would be able to handle himself in. While that particular happened to have the best match genetically which removal would not cause much issues.

This hardly justifies it. Lions thrive when in groups, they are happier this way. Nature gave these lions a brother, by Kruger's own policies, they were in no position to separate them, making their lives harder and them less happy.

From where you guys got info that they where separated? 

As for separation, relocating 2 males in a certain area is very dangerous for local lion population.

2 males can easily oust 1 local territorial male, with more effort and luck even coalition of 2 or 3...kill all the cubs and few females in process.

While lone male cant do nearly as much damage.

In a sense its not fair to the brothers, but it would not be fair aswell to the territorial male which those 2 could oust/kill if they relocate him to his area or near by.

This situation is hard and imposible to fix, as these lions have to be moved, but with that you are playing with nature.

Shipping them far north where lion population is low is not an answer as we saw with Snip Mpondo and HP male.
