The lioness preyed upon a cow in the village on Friday late night and it lost track of its cub that continued to have its feast on the prey, the lioness returned to the forest, said the forest official.

He said that the cub on realising that the mother was not around, got frightened and wandered into house of Bachibhai Makwana situated in vicinity of the lioness kill.
