We saw a pack of +- 12 Wild Dogs on the tar road form Skukuza to Tsokwane.

It was still early morning and the light was not perfect but still a rare sighting

It looks like the female is pregnant and there will soon be small pubs somewhere .....

I don't see a link for this animal, so I though that I would start one. we've seen them 4 times now in Kruger. These photos were taken at Leeupan off the H1-2.

Our experience with wild dogs:

Kruger Park - South Africa - 15 september 2012

A rainy morning, around 9 am. We're driving on the 'Circle Road' near Pretoriuskop.

On the road ahead, we see an unexpected animal. It appears to be a domestic dog, complete with collar and leash around his neck.
He probably strayed away from a village close to the border of the Krugerpark and must have gotten lost; he's running around aimlessly.

Suddenly we notice a group of 'Wild Dogs' walking high up between the rocks. They spotted the little domestic dog as well and climb down towards the road.
Fearing the worst for the little dog, we could do nothing but watch the violent confrontation happen in front of our car.
The three Wild Dogs attack and they engage in a wild and unfair fight, chasing the defenseless dog into the high grass.

The little dog gives everything he's got: he bites, growls, barks, bares his teeth...

Just when we're thinking the little animal must be getting devoured in the bushes, something even more unexpected happens:
the three big dogs give up their fight and flee away, tail between their legs.

After his surprising victory we see the domestic dog one last time. Limping slightly on his rear leg, he disappears along the road.

What a strange and once in a lifetime experience Selamat. It is strange and peculiar due to the fact that wild dogs actually even kill single dogs that is in their territory and this pet made it out alive :hmz: amazing pics and a big WOW!

I'm just putting the link up so the other mites can view it directly:
