NEWSLINK: One of Cecil's cubs killed by rival

One of Cecil the lion’s young cubs has been killed by a predatory big cat who was trying to mate with his mother.

His attack has sparked fears the remaining seven cubs have only days to live after their father was illegally slain on a ­trophy hunt.

Wildlife guides warn the tiny pride – originally made up of three lionesses and eight cubs – have only a five per cent chance of ­survival after several solitary male lions were spotted prowling near their abandoned den in Hwange National Park.
