Cecil the lion’s family alive and well

Travel Bites Safari News

Following a week of tragedy, celebration and loss, we’ve received some good news from the animal kingdom. Cecil the lion’s cubs and females have been spotted and – according to a video – are doing well.

Our good friends at African Bush Camps sent out the video after taking guests on a game drive. The pack is seen strolling peacefully through Zimbabwe’s majestic bush veld – unaware of the world fame Cecil the lion has received.

Here’s the video in full.    

VIDEO: Cecil the lion’s family spotted

The good news follows a heartwarming tribute in New York where Cecil was screened on to the Empire State Building. In addition, several US airlines have voluntarily halted all transfers of trophies.

Prof Jonathan Baillie, director of conservation at the Zoological Society of London, highlighted a vital issue when speaking to the press earlier this week regarding illegal poaching.

"While this is one animal, you have got over 1,000 rhinos being illegally killed, over 30,000 elephants being killed, 100,000 pangolins being killed [each year]. So we really hope the public focuses on this bigger issue."

For now the story ends on a happy note. Want more safari news? Check out our Travel Bites
