When a girl says no she means no!

We found our dominant male lion (named Black Dam after the place where he came from) limping on his right hind leg after spending some time with the lionesses from the Northern pride. He had been mating with them and it seems one of the lionesses lashed out at him when he went too far. He will recover from the wound and it certainly didn’t stop him trying to take down an adult giraffe by jumping on to its back (the giraffe managed to shake him off and escape). But it does goes to show that even in the lions’ world: When a girl says no she means no!
