Dogs at play

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Our Wild World -

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

Daniel spot­ted these play­ing painted wolves while on sa­fari.
