The Big Loss of cheetah

Dear My Rafikis,
I m yet to tell you Bad news of cheetah this week. Allana got into trouble with mash pride yesterday exact place she lost he cubs, but she took off to the bushers with her cubs and manage to escape the danger. 
There is nothing we can do to stop this encounter as guides we just sit and watch hopping things will be ok.
We still dont know where Shakira is its a long away from my area of game drive but as far as I m concern she is well with her cubs, she is got through that had preriod where cubs are venerable.


This is the last time I sow her and looking at her and one of the cubs they have well grown up to be honest.

Then Yesterday the biggest lost of all, another female Cheetah near Olkiombo Airstrip with two of her little cubs got killed by the Olkiombo pride.
It is the worst week for cheetah, about three days ago we lost two little cubs and yesterday loosing a mother and two cubs is not one of our happy new year.

This poor mother was trying to differed her three cubs from the lions but it turn out to be the pride was too larger 17 of them with three large males, she then brave it too much to an extent of loosing her life and two of the little ones what a sad day for the mara.

We then reported the matter to the park rangers and yesterday they were looking for the severer  in the long grass hopefully they have found it. I will let you all know what had happend to the little orphan if she is still a life.
This is one of Olkiombo Lioness.

Warm Regards Jackson Looseyia.

Terrible news Jackson.
Life is so hard for cheetahs.
Not the start of the year I was hoping for.
Kind regards.

Jackson,

Was the cheetah that was killed near Ol Kiombo called Itchy, daughter of Kike? We were there in September and she had 3 cubs the same age as Shakira and her 3 cubs.

Very sad indeed.

This is such a sad start to the New Year. Cheetahs seem to have a very tough life.
Hope the remaining cubs make it and that Shakira and her girls keep safe.

Mama Duma said...

Oh Jackson, this is just awful. What a horrible start to the new year. Nature can be so cruel sometimes. Let's just hope that the little cub is found safe and well and is old enough to survive without her mother.
Thinking of all of you in the Mara,
Love Mama Duma

isnt there something yous can do over there from stopping the lions killing cheetahs, i was just watching a very upsetting clip on youtube of a lioness killing 1 of 2 brother cheetahs. it brought tears to my eyes.the other brother helplessly watch on while his brother was killed. i know there is a rule where u cant interfere but how many of the endangered species the cheetah do u wanna see get killed b4 something is done.

Hi Jackson,

It's brilliant of you to take time to tell us all this; thank you very much again.

I'm gutted for those poor cheetahs.

Keeping fingers, toes, everything crossed that you're right about Shakira and the girls.

Lottie said...

So sorry to hear the sad news, the cheetahs seem to have a really tough time, butI suppose that's the law of nature.
I do hope Shakira & her cubs are doing ok.
Thank you Jackson for keeping us up to date, I miss seeing the cats, hope BCL is back on our screens very soon
