Feud brew­ing for wolf fam­ily

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

David At­ten­bor­ough’s Dy­nas­ties, Nine, Satur­day at 7pm

SIR David At­ten­bor­ough’s

is a new kind of nat­u­ral history event. Five episodes will fo­cus on five of the most cel­e­brated and en­dan­gered an­i­mals on the planet.

Never be­fore has the BBC pre­sented a land­mark se­ries with such pow­er­ful sto­ry­telling about fam­i­lies, lead­ers and he­roes.

This week’s episode fol­lows the lives of a pack of painted wolves, a wild dog na­tive to sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa.

The leader of a great painted wolf fam­ily is grow­ing old and her power to keep the peace is wan­ing; a feud with an am­bi­tious daugh­ter threat­ens to bring the dy­nasty down.

When honey badgers get their eyes on some new­born pup­pies, Tait and her daugh­ter need to col­lab­o­rate to save them from dan­ger.
