There were conflicting reports about the well-being of "Jericho," the brother of "Cecil" the Lion.
The Zimbabwe Conservation Task force says "Jericho" was feared dead after reports claimed he was killed in the south African country.
But a British researcher monitoring Jericho with a GPS device, confirmed he was alive.
This report came just days after the news broke about the death of 13-year-old "Cecil."
Officials say the protected lion was lured out of a Zimbabwean national park by an American dentist and his guides and killed during an illegal hunt last month.
