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.

Why did Sabi Sand euthanize their sons? Did they get infected with some sort of epidemic disease ?

No, not at all.  They merely escaped from a protective barrier one time.  For this infringement, they got a death sentence.  Believe it or not.  It was a VERY controversial decision.  If it had happened in more enlightened periods....like more recently, they might have just been relocated or been given more chances, at least.  There was a whopping 6 sub-adult males, if I'm not mistaken! Imagine the progeny they could have left behind.  I believe this judgement was motivated in part by the reputation their sires had, but it was no fault of the sons of the Sand River Pride.  They were nomadic or almost so.

So sad to know these young boys dies in this way.
