We have seen them at last! I am extremely pleased to report that there are seven new members of our Wild Dog pack. They are doing extremely well to raise so many with only three adults and yearling. Wild Dogs can be very resiliant and bounce back quite quickly in suitable areas. If most of these survive and there is another successful litter next year, this pack will have pulled back from the brink of extinction and re-established themselves as a force to be reckoned with here in the Limpopo Valley. Now that they are old enough to have left their first den site, we are hopeful that most, if not all, of these puppies will make it. This pack has had a rough ride of late, but things are definitely looking brighter. Watch this space for photos!
