Much maligned but really efficient predators

Wild dogs have sadly been persecuted for many years by livestock owners. So its great to see them on safari.
Much maligned, they are actually very efficient predators. Not the vicious killers as often depicted, when hunting it can take them just 3 mins from the first bite to nothing but bones remaining.
Pack life follows a strict hierarchy with everyone pitching in to bring up the youngsters. Wonderful to see and wonderful to know they still survive if only in certain areas.
