Farewell to a Lioness

One of the Chada pride's best hunters has finally succumbed to her wound.  Kicked in the back by a buffalo while hunting in June, Salama has been nursing a gash in her back that stubbornly refused to heal.

 

We found her body, but we would rather just show you this, her paw, and some pictures of her in life.

When we posted the above shot on Chada's Facebook page in August, we still had high hopes that Salama would pull through.

Farewell to a lovely lady.
