After Zimbabwe's Cecil the lion was killed, some reports erroneously said his ally Jericho was also dead. Now, reports say Jericho is alive.By Eugene Daniels | August 1, 2015
Less than a week after news surfaced that Cecil the Lion was killed after he was lured outside a Zimbabwean national park, there were conflicting reports if Cecil's ally, Jericho, had also been killed.
But the Oxford Wildlife Conservation Research Unit confirmed Jericho was alive Sunday morning after a team searched for him.
The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force also posted a statement on its Facebook page confirming Jericho had been seen Saturday night.
