African Wild dogs chasing Cape buffalo through the forest

Painted Wolves chasing Cape Buffalo through Forest Painted Wol

Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia, Africa

The African Painted Wolf hunts by directly approaching its prey silently, then initiating chase when the panicked animals run. No stealth is involved. Pursuit speeds can range up to 66 km/hr (41 mph) and go on for 10–60 minutes. As seen in this hunt through the forest of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park, large prey animals are repeatedly bitten on the legs, belly, and rump until it stops running and is exhausted. The dynamics of this hunt can easily be appreciated by the rising cloud of dust, which nicely adds to the atmosphere of this image. The Painted Wolves are shown working together, even herding the buffalo as they hunt.
