Wild dogs are known as one of the animal kingdom’s most successful hunters, almost 80% success rate.
This video shows you exactly why!
45-year-old Mandy Taplin experienced this highly emotional sighting in Moremi, in Botswana.
Mandy explained what happened: “Our guide, Lets, from Ethnic Nature Safari Tours, was taking us out for the last morning drive of our incredible 4-night stay at Moremi.
We had left our campsite early and had already seen wildebeest, zebra, impala, giraffe, jackal, saddle billed storks, wattled cranes and 2 male lions.”
“At around 8am we saw buffaloes in the distance and what looked like calves playing, so we decided to get a closer look. As we were approaching, we realised that there was a large pack of wild dogs. It was unbelievably exciting as we had heard them 2 nights prior but were unable to locate them.”
“On arrival, we saw that the buffalo herd had been split, and in the middle, the wild dogs were actually eating 2 buffalo calves. What happened next was a roller coaster of emotions and an absolute adrenaline rush…”
