Lions are fairly adaptable. In Serengeti, you can often see females climbing trees to get a better view of the savannah. Let's wish them well....Ethiopia is a poor country.

Is she the only lion there or are there others? If there are others and this is not a chance occurrence, then lions are more adaptive than I would have given them credit for.

These creatures are being forced into territories not natural for them because of man. We have to control the human population and give back to the animals what is there's.
