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.

We know that Dreadlock's death was at the hands of a poacher, possibly Rasta, but could PB's injury have been caused by men as well?

That injury on PB's back can easly be by the bite of another male.. I dont think that poachers would use spears to hunt lions, yet rifles..

In area around Masai Mara local tribes hunt lions with spears, but in Kruger i dont think thats the case..

Ok, I had only recently watched a video on tribes that hunted lions with spears, must be the group you are referring to in the Mara. I certainly wouldn't hunt a lion with a spear, but that's just me. Not that I'd hunt one at all, but if so a rifle would certainly be my weapon of choice. Thanks!

That also looks to me as a bite plus some infection and inflammation. 

As per "Occam's Razor," I tend to prefer the easier explanation of lions doing what lions do, i.e. killing each other for territory and mating rights.

You may very well be right, and are certainly taking the right approach I believe. Perhaps I was reading too much into it, perhaps it was a combination of a lot of factors, but I agree the simplest approach is often the best choice. Thanks!

It look like Othawa M and T are younger than I though some time ago which makes them even more impressive. They were looking amazing for their age.

Too bad none of their male offspring survived.... Can you imagine the press and attention they'd have gotten?!  Even now, there are many who ask over and over where the male offspring are and nobody knows except for the two that took off in KNP, then suddenly disappeared. 

Would be even more intriguing to find out the exact amount of surviving offspring sired by each of the males....percentage wise. This could generate endless discussions and excitement, LOL.   Hard to believe Satan systematically killed the last set of cubs by his coalition.  No, they had to be his even though he must have known they were at least his brothers.  The cannibalizing of those lions he killed.  Wonder what triggered such aggression and the need to dominate at all costs?  Extremely high testosterone running rampant?  Almost unnaturally so.  I guess lots of competition can trigger unnatural behaviors....
