on A Morning with the Toulon Pack of Wild Dogs

Great news that this pack has found their way back to Londolozi.
I hope that they will stay a bit so that I might see them in a few weeks time.
Looking forward to it and all the other animals at Londolozi.

How exciting to see this pack of wild dogs again. They’re so amazing to watch while actively hunting, but also during break time when you can observe how social they are. I was surprised to read that they had potentially lost a kill to hyenas as I would have thought their numbers would overpower the hyena clan. Just illustrates how one can’t make assumptions with the animal world….

Love the blog, Kirst! The wild dogs are exciting to find and chase as they move across the reserve. Is this the pack that has all the collared dogs?

So fantastic to see the wild dogs Kirst. They are so playful and it is always a highlight to see these wild dogs, quite a large pack, full of energy and shame felt sorry for the poor hare that was eaten up so quickly. If I remember correctly Ranger Jess loves the wild dogs as well and it is her favorite animal.

We had a wonderful encounter with these dons They were just hanging out some playing around. An inquisitive hyena came up to one of the dogs (who was on a rock right next to our truck). They sniffed each other like dog would do. They actually touched noses The hyena went over to a different dog who wasn’t as inviting.

I LOVE these dogs Kirst!! Such great images capturing the energy, and do I dare say, joy!!
