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:

Onewithnature seeing wild dogs on three different occasions was exceptionally special. And what made it even more special was that the last time I saw them in Kruger was in 1999 and this 2013 sightings of the two different packs was SO’s first ‘wild’ wild dog sighting.

Here's the correct video link since the board update:



Amazing to see them attacking in a pack but very difficult viewing, I was glad I wasn't there. At least it didn't last too long for the Impala.
