The residents of Nairobi are becoming upset over marauding lionnesses who are invading their gardens and savaging their pet dogs underneath the rose bushes. So far a rottweiller has been killed, a spaniel is missing and a ridgeback and bull terrier have been mauled but lived to show their scars. I’m not too concerned about these canine casualties but it worries me that a hungry lion might mistake a feline domestic god or goddess for an amuse-guele or appetiser.
Rangers from the game park which borders Nairobi have set traps without success and even conservationists are now saying that shooting the lions may be the only solution. I hope it doesn’t come to that.
The Chair Stealer/ Duvet Denier has just come in the front door so I’m off to launch my charm offensive. Will keep you posted……
