Following the hunting of much publicized Cecil the lion, there are reports that his brother Jericho the Lion’s fate is also under threat. Jericho was expected to take care of the cubs left behind by Cecil the Lion who was hunted by an American doctor.

While the Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer is still in hiding following the extradition request, he told the media that he didn’t do anything wrong as the people who were paid $52000 by him had valid hunting license for lion. Nonetheless officials in Zimbabwe have said that Cecil the Lion was one of their most popular lion and was being followed through GPS.

They have also apprehended the two people who were behind the killing of the lion. Following the killing of Cecil, reports appeared that Jericho the Lion was also killed.

The rumors of the killing of the lion started doing the rounds this past Saturday. In the meantime David Macdonald, director of Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU), shared the latest on Jericho’s fate, and he said that, “Jericho was seen alive and well. He has been feeding on a giraffe kill with the lionesses from his pride.”

Right now the whole world’s attention seems to be fixated at Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe and the lions roaming across the massive park. It was the killing of Cecil the Lion that brought the Zimbabwean park and its attractive inhabitants in media focus across the globe.

Many human rights organization and celebrities came out against the dentist who is accused of killing the Cecil. Jimmy Kimmel attacked the dentist behind Cecil’s death during one of nightly monologues. He ended his speech with a plea for donations, and money started to pour into the organization that conducts the research at the Hwange National Park.

Meanwhile it has been confirmed that Jericho actually started taking care of cubs left behind by Cecil. It was feared that another male lion would come in and kill those cubs left behind by Cecil. Reports make it amply clear that Jericho did not allow that to happen. David Macdonald spoke about the natural way of life for lions. According to Daily Mail, he said that, “The natural law in lion society is that when a male dies and his weakened coalition is usurped, the new incoming males kill their predecessors’ cubs. This may not happen because Cecil’s brother is still holding the fort.”
