Wild dog sighting continues

By Patrick O’Brien on November 12, 2008

As we set of during the morning drive…

within 5 minutes we were informed that a pack of wild dog just killed an adult impala. We arrived within 15 minutes after the kill was made and we were fortunate to witness the end of the feeding frenzy.

This is the same pack that was found yesterday. The 8 pups were stuffed from the meal and the adults watched over the pups as they played with each other.

  1. I notice one of the dogs ears are nicked is that something you guys have done to track them or did another dog take a bite out of him. I miss you guys a ton. Hope you party fo the kids goes well for Christmas. My husband and I afe saving to make this trip again, this was by far the best vacation I have ever had. I love getting all the photos. If you or any of you for that matter get to the USA please feel free to stay with us in Utah or Wyoming. there is much to se both places. We are only about 30 miles from Yellostone Park in the summer.

  2. Thank you for sharing this experience Patrick. I can almost hear the dogs chomping and gnarling on the Impala. To see a pack of Wild Dogs is special, but to see them with a kill is awesome.
