…at Elephant Whispers….
…a cheetah at
Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.
Say Hello to ‘Limpy’ the lioness.
So named because she was born
with a malformed foot.
This night while on a game drive
a sharp bend in the track nearly
had our vehicle run over Limpy.
She settle 15-20 feet away, called to her cubs,
then turned and looked at me.
I still get goose bumps all over when I see this image.
No fences, no barrackades,
just mutual trust separated us.
Sadly she had to be put down
in less than twelve months
as she had contracted a contagious disease
of some sort.
Again I have no idea what this is, except…
…that I found it in
St James’ Park
Love the foliage.
