Some photos taken at a wildlife preserve in Kenya have appeared online recently and I wanted to share them with you. Photographer Jean-Francois Largot managed to capture a daring rescue of a lion cub by his mother.
The cub had slipped and slid down an almost vertical cliff. Upon hearing the cub’s cries several of the pride’s lionesses considered a rescue attempt, but decided that the slope was too steep.
Ultimately, it was only the cub’s mother that decided to risk the treacherous drop to save her son.
After a perilous climb back to the top with the cub in her mouth, all is right with this lioness’s pride once again.
