Baboons vs. Wild Dogs: Stand-Off in the Road

Baboons vs. Wild Dogs: Stand-Off in the Road


Wild Dogs are some of the most ferocious and efficient predators in Africa. But the dogs are easily frightened by the fierce baboons. What happens when these two fearsome foes cross paths in the wild? An interesting interaction ensues…

According to our sources at Kruger National Park, seeing an actual battle between baboons and wild dogs has never been filmed, as these two pack creatures tend to avoid each other whenever possible.

Wild dogs are easily frightened and the baboons easily chase off the pack. Only if the dogs were extremely hungry – and only if they saw an opportunity, such as a young baboon separated from the troop – would they actually decide to go for a baboon.
