It was cute the first time, but...

You might remember the last time we reported on a lioness caring for a baby antelope, who was later eaten by another lion.
Well, it's happened again. She's found ANOTHER oryx, and is caring for it. Experts are much more worried this time because the mother of the baby cannot nurse it (it's understandibly terrified of the lion pride). The lioness is protecting the new baby so well that not only are other lions not able to steal it, humans can't take it away to give it some food. If this continues, it will likely starve in the next day or two.

I love this story. I wish some one would document this pictures if they could.

On the humorous side perhaps the lioness is holding the calf for ransom??
