Saved... for now: Cecil the lion's cubs are being protected by his BROTHER after fears rival male will kill them and take over the pride, says Oxford University expert
The cubs fathered by Cecil the lion are being protected by his brother amid fears they will be killed by a male rival, researchers said today.
The much-loved lion was killed by American dentist Walter Palmer earlier this month, sparking outrage around the world.
After his death, there were fears his cubs would be killed by the next lion in the hierarchy so he could father his own offspring with the females in the pride.
But a team at Oxford University's Wildlife Conservation Unit, which had been studying Cecil before he was shot dead, said the lion's brother had stepped in to safeguard the young.

Two men arrested in the death of Cecil the lion -- a case in which an American dentist has also been accused, unleashing a torrent of anger online -- were released Wednesday by a court in Zimbabwe on $1,000 bail each.
Theo Bronchorst, a professional hunter, and Honest Trymore Ndlovu, a landowner, both Zimbabweans, said through their attorney that they were innocent of poaching charges, which officials said could bring a sentence of 10 years in prison.
Zimbabwean authorities said that Walter J. Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, paid at least $50,000 for the hunt. Palmer has said he relied on the expertise of local guides "to ensure a legal hunt."
But the lion that he and his local guides killed wasn't just any lion, according to Zimbabwean officials.
He was Cecil, a major tourist draw at Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park.
The 13-year-old lion, recognizable by the black streaks in his mane, suffered a slow death, according to the Zimbabwe National Conservation Force.
The hunters lured him out of the sanctuary of the park with a dead animal on top of a vehicle, the conservation group said.
Palmer, officials said, then shot the lion with a crossbow, a method for which he is known. But Cecil survived another 40 hours until the hunters tracked him down and shot him with a gun.

Yes let’s all shed a tear for one fricking lion in Zimbabwe where people are killed by lions all the time. I guess that’s OK with liberal idiots though. Not to mention the poverty, inflation and fear of their own government that every Zimbabwean experiences every day. It really is beyond us how people can get even mildly upset about this when human babies in the USA are being killed and then ghouls from “Planned Parenthood” dissect and sell them because they want a Lamborghini. Crickets! Trump is leading the GOP pack and yes more Hispanics like him than Jeb “The Panderer” Bush. It is pretty illuminating. We will also discuss Hillary’s sinking numbers. Also, more flag bikinis.
A trophy-hunting American sparked worldwide outrage after he killed a beloved lion that was lured off protected land in Zimbabwe.
Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer, who faces poaching charges, paid $55,000 to a pair of local guides for the lion hunt earlier this month in the African nation.
Auhorities charge the safari was more like a mob hit, with the unwitting 13-year-old king of the jungle known as Cecil enticed to his death on unprotected land outside Hwange National Park.
After Palmer shot the lion with a bow and arrow, the wounded beast was stalked for 40 hours before it was shot, skinned and beheaded, with its carcass dumped near the park’s border.

On this edition of Free for All Friday, Randall and Stacy Harp discuss the news of the day. Today we will discuss the tragic death of a lion named Cecil and the more tragic death of millions of babies who have been slaughteterd by Planned Parenthood.
