The wild puppies that you see in the background were a litter that we came across on our safari in South Africa. Wild dogs are very rare as they have been hunted by farmers protecting their farm animals. These pups were upsetting a herd of elephants (you couldn't see them but you could sure hear them!) that were in the nearby bushes. Most of the wild dog litters at Thanda game reserve have not survived because they have been killed by the lions in the area. This litter was doing very well though! It was a highlight of our trip.
