Lose of Cheetah Mum and her unseen babies

Dear Friends,

As the Season Kick in we are have good report and bad at the same time as you would expect from a lively place like the Maasai Mara.

Just two days ago we had lost this female, we had seen her before with her cub a blind eyed one if you all remember, she lost her some where to shaped then she got pregnant after.

There is a Maasai proverb which say ''Melami Nkiragat'' meaning you will not excape fate.
The Vet wanted to help her after she had an injury but she never got up so sad.
As we are talking about this news the mother with five cubs at Naboisho also kill by Lions we think and one of the cubs is missing too we do not know up to date what happen.
This is a big lose to our Cheetah in the mara I could not sleep for a few days after this news.

The Simbas are doing well however some of them got in trouble from cattle grassers not long ago the drought is had the wildebeest migration is in direct competition to our cattle so the pressure is very high.

Good day to you all.


Jackson Looseyia.

So very sorry to hear this....such is the daily life in the wilds of Africa. This is why Simon, Jonathan and Saba continually speak of the %'s of lions, leopards and cheetahs & cubs who don't reach maturity. I wish I could put a protective bubble around them all!

We see the films here and know that many of the animals we see on those programs are gone. It was good to read about the cheetah with the five cubs...and now sad to read that they didn't survive. Lions are beautiful, but I love seeing the cheetahs.

That sounds very sad.... I love to see animal cubs taking birth in wild life. But I feel disappointing when I hear the news of animals death. I am very keen to hear the good news about animals in the future. Hope every thing will go on well....

What a beautifully sad story. Just incredible that this mother raised 5 at once!! A story like this really changes a person. She is forever now in my heart, and her kits in my prayers. Thank you Jackson for your work. Your work is so valuable to your country, your continent, the animals, and all of us.
God bless, Teresa C
