The Maasai people raise cows. Lions eat cows. Maasai kill those lions.
Now there are not as many lions. Can people and lions share the same land?
Fifty young men track lions. They warn herders. They build strong fences. They teach people how to live with lions.
READ MORE: Saitoti Petro is a lion tracker. There were only 120 lions left eight years ago in the part of Tanzania where he patrols. Now there are over 160. Most lions live in a large wildlife park. There is no way to fence them in. So people learn how to build strong fences around their villages. No cows have been killed in Mr. Petro’s village since the fence was built. David tells King Saul in 1 Samuel 17:37, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion” will deliver me from the hand of Goliath."
