Lion Cubs Play Whack A Mole with Geese

This captivating sighting was filmed on the Dulini Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands Greater Kruger. Jem Harris shared this incredible sighting with where he witnessed lions hunting geese in the mud! Lions are not too fond of getting into the water. They can swim, but from most experiences, getting wet is not their favorite thing to do.

But of course, when food, or rather a snack, in this case, is involved, they do not mind getting their paws dirty. Literally. At first, these lions are curious about the strange creatures floating in the water. But when they soon realize this could easily be a good snack, they start attempting to get to the Egyptian geese. At first, it is not too much fun, as they are unsure of how deep the mud could be, but one eventually risks it and gets to the goose.

This is the moment that Jem Harris witnessed a lion cub play whack-a-mole with Egyptian geese in the mud! I like how the cub got a pat on the back from his sibling for getting the goose. I think that the lion was wanting the rest of his cubs to gram one for him as well. It was the practice range for the young ones to time their strikes. Haha. All the adults were like, “Yup, you can do it!”

I adore this lovely pride!! It is so happy to see this lovely pride doing what they want, even if the cub caught duck in the mud.. God bless this beautiful pride of lions always. I hope they get a good meal every day and keep them safe always! Thanks for sharing this fabulous video of this dynamic family of lions,because they are always the best!
