   Not nececellary.  BHI claims that the "Sue" site provides evidence of a
family group.  It is possible they formed prides such as lions do, and
defended territories and fought with other prides just as lions do.  I saw a
documentary where three rogue male lions killed the two male lions of a
pride and took over.  Perhaps this is what happened to Sue.
