    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure they have tracking collars on some of the lions.

    Ah, nevermind, just saw the discussion(DSG000015f) about this very topic.

    Yes some of the lions are collared. They said in one of the discussions to identify it normally, but you can mark it with hashtag collared.

    This one was trapped in a snare, not collared.

    The collar on ASG0004j97 is much thicker, wider, and better-fitting; this thing appears to be cutting into the poor lion's neck.

    In discussion thread, a researcher says: "rescued from a snare in 2007 or so.. the wound has never healed but the male remains successful!

    On the mara Hyena Project we had a male with a snare who seemed to be fine but then after a year it got infected so we darted him

    and he was slowly being decapitated and it was filled with maggots! We removed the snare, cleaned it out and he recovered 100%
