Wild Dogs in Kwando

The first dog den of the season was found at Kwando Lebala a few days ago. A highly unusual situation has arisen, with three females in the pack of 8 dogs being pregnant.

The third female has yet to give birth, and has been harassed by the other dogs. With no female showing clear...
