Thanks Paul

The consensus in LWC is that this boy is likely her brother or half brother, most likely her half brother which is fortuitous in the mock mating that took part with this pair 3 months ago did  not take. He was eeking out an existence by stealing kills from Giza.

The troublesome male was very much on his last legs, with a serious hip/pelvic issue and sporting a tumorous growth between stomach and ribs and literally........dragging his rear right leg and was very easy to track in the morning, clearly showing the drag mark. He's now not been seen in the last month, and likely he's met his maker.

If ever there was a case for euthanasia, he would have been it, whist struggling to walk with his arched gait, one could hear him let out a slight groan with every stride, painful to witness. 

One of the last pictures taken of him, note the arched gait and tumor.:




Ahhh. I remember Simon saying he was injured - I didn’t realise that badly. Ouch! But you don’t get to know anything much staying too nights. Thanks.

He stoically clung on for quite a while, however his injury deteriorated quite badly in June and he disappeared the last few days before I left. :(
