For several days Bush Camp alumni have been increasingly concerned about the whereabouts of the Fig’s yearling. They need not have worried, she is in rude good health.
John Owens and Patrick Koriata found her parading virtually under the noses of two none to shabby looking young male lions. Once she had sashayed through some granite she spotted some distant mongooses. After a couple of hundred metres she overhauled the striped scamps before grabbing a brace.
This may not be her favourite cuisine but youngsters will sometimes choose a la carte. For her a goose is not just for Christmas.
