Lions Near

Lions have been unusually active around Olbalbal these days. There have been a number of sittings both at night and during the day. Maybe it has to do with the presence of large numbers of wildebeest. The wildebeest are giving birth these days and presenting a threat to the health of Maasai cattle. Cattle find the wildebeest after births appetizing and become sick when they eat them. The warriors are out trying to block the wildebeest from getting near the grazing herds of cattle. The movement of the wildebeest is a yearly event but this year there seem to be larger herds than is usual. My hope is that the lions will stick to their preferred diet of wildebeest steak.
