Wild Dogs After The Chase
Painting - Oil On Canvas
These dogs though not much bigger than a jackal hunt in packs of ten to fifteen members. They form a ruthless hunting machine. Their speed and endurance enable them to attack larger animals than themselves. They are usually found in open areas and hunt during the day. They can chase their prey for several kilometres before tearing the victim apart while it is still alive. I suspect the term 'wild dog' was not given lightly, nevertheless they are a sight to behold in their natural environment and they are currently on the endangered list - a great pity!
