Hello

We saw this very ill lion at Marie se Draai waterhole, as many people did, during our stay in February. This was on a guided night drive. The guide said the relevant rangers were aware: he also confirmed that the liquid coming from his mouth was a bad sign. The lion had been there all day and was still there the following morning. Can anyone tell us what happened to him? What was his illness?
