Mr. Grey & Twin eat a warthog!

Not exactly "breaking news", but it is good news.  Since they were pushed out of their territory near the Ugandan kob fields by The Coalition of Three, there has been concern that Mr. Grey and Twin may prey on some of the village of Katanguru's goats, who often stray into the park where they are now.  

Preying on livestock put lions at risk of retaliatory killing - cattle owners will sometimes lace the livestock carcasses with poison, which results in the lions death if/when they return to feed on it.  When we come upon a livestock carcass, we will attempt to retrieve it and dispose of it safely away from the predators in order to try to avoid this situation.
