Lioness Adopts Oryx

I was going through articles I have been saving from diffeent stories in Africa. I came across the one about Kamuniak (lioness) that adopted the baby oryx, 5 different ones.. What an amazing story that was .... The calfs - Valentine & Easter were named for the time of the year she took them from their mothers, as her own.

Just sharing a wonderful memory after I saw the Oryx on Leopard cam...

Yes, I remember when......

Unfortunately there were few 'updates' about this story and about the ultimate fate of Kumaniak.
Rumour was that she was killed by an incoming pride but there was no real evidence to substantiate this.
