Lion cub saved by mum

September 26, 2011
The tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help.

His mother arrives at the edge of the precipice with three other lionesses and a male. The females start to clamber down together but turn back daunted by the sheer drop.Eventually one single factor determines which of them will risk her life to save the youngster – motherly love.

The mother arrives at the edge of the cliff as her son cries out for rescue after being trapped when he slipped.

Four lionesses look over the edge before aborting their rescue mission because of the sheer drop.

The mother inches her way down the cliff face to rescue the terrified cub before locking him in her jaws and making her way back up the cliff face.

The mother gives her son a lick to say that all is well in the pride following the drama.
