Here is a really interesting article. It was verified a rare sighting by the President of Luke Panthera Hunter. The photos were taken inside the Ngorongoro Crater near the Ndutu Lodge. Leopard cub was seen suckling on lioness who had cubs of her own.  http://www.newsweek.com/photos-wild-lion-adopts-leopard-cub-unprecedented-sight-636182

I hope it makes it, but what are the chances if it grew into it's first year and now doesn't have the hoisting knowledge or loses it's instinct to flee from lions? It will be interesting to see what happens. I can't think the rest of the pride or even the males who dominate the pride will accept it.
