Wild Dogs after a Kill in Madikwe Reserve, South Africa

We are privileged to have this image from Stephen Raffay along with the beautiful Zebra images that we posted earlier this week on our Facebook page.  Stephen is an avid wildlife photographer and has captured some awesome wildlife moments.

This particular pack of Wild Dogs were tracked from just outside Tau Camp in the Malaria Free Madikwe Reserve to a nearby dam.  There were 22 dogs in the pack and they chased down and killed an Impala (local antelope found in the reserve).  They also tried to catch 2 Waterbuck who fled into the dam which ultimately saved them from the Dogs.

Madikwe Reserve is well known in South Africa for its conservation efforts to keep the endangered Wild Dog populations growing.
