Another day in Africa! Johannesburg! Lucky me?! Now I’ve really had a serious taste of pollution and traffic to cure me of the city for many many years to come.
A few days after Manyari’s injury her cubs were getting desperate to go hunting, so when mom called them they were all over her seeming to be totally oblivious to her painful state. In such pain Manyari was unable to swat them aside and could only snarl in disapproval before lying up to rest further.
And I’m sure she’ll be going strong when I return but her injuries will still be a long way from mending. Thankfully she has time and knows she must keep them clean. Her discomforts will continue for some time but I’m confident she will one day again be charging after zebra and jumping on the backs of buffalo again.
