I've been very curious about these studies since camtrapping my first collared lion last year.
Here's the first published information I've found about my local lions:

Study suggests I may only see lion traffic in my wildland interface area when hunting is poor in the usual spots.

That looks like a very tight collar. I'm surprised we are still using these. Lotek has a much better solution at a fraction of the weight and impact on the lion.

I've been told all of the lions with working collars had them removed about 18 months ago, when the study ended. This cat probably has a broken transmitter. If I were to see this individual again (especially near a kill) I have a number to call so officials can trap the cat to remove its collar.

This is a collared female that had walked over 150km. to find her own territory. She had been wearing a collar for over 9 years. This was her 2nd. litter in 3+ years, that I have known of.
Here's her final chapter..........
