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.
On this week's edition of Eleventh House Radio, I'll be looking at the sign of Leo and the omnipresent image of the recently slain lion known as "Cecil" from Zimbabwe. Why are we seeing so much of him? Is it deeply subliminal programming? Are we into the realm of archetypes, portals and endtimes symbolism? What can we derive from this, especially as we approach the Jupiter/Venus conjunction in Leo for one more time? Also, I'll have a look at some Pluto in Sag kids and the new philosophical voice for a generation.

On this week's edition of Eleventh House Radio, I'll be looking at the sign of Leo and the omnipresent image of the recently slain lion known as "Cecil" from Zimbabwe. Why are we seeing so much of him? What's the underlying current of symbolism? Is there another level of manifestation underneath a heavily symbolic bliz of leonine energy? Does Obama play a role in this cosmic drama?
What lies ahead for this week's stars as well?
We'll have a look at all of this and more on this week's Eleventh House Radio.
