Dogs at play
I enjoyed the article by Mark Eveleigh on painted wolves (Wild dog chase, November 2018). I was fortunate to see some a couple of years ago, when I visited Zimanga Private Game Reserve in South Africa.
During one game drive, our guide noticed a cloud of dust in the distance and told us that there might be some fighting going on. We saw a dozen or so painted wolves attacking some buffalos. However, the buffalos were also very aggressive, kicking some of the wolves away. Despite this, the wolves began to play-fight amongst themselves, which is when I took this picture. It was intensely exciting to both watch and capture this moment. Daniel, 15, via email
