A hunt in camp is special and to witness Painted Dogs hunt and kill three times around camp the same day is crazy. We witnessed three kills in a single day and know there must have been at least two more successful hunts just outside of camp.
The Painted Dog is a diurnal carnivore living in packs. They are endangered due to loss of habitat, but also because they are susceptible to diseases such as rabies, contracted usually from domestic animals.
It will always be a pleasure to spend time with an Elephant even if some doesn't like the company of men. Treat them nicely and they will accept you into their world and that is truly something special.
