This gorgeous photo is of “Claw” -a young African wild dog who had her first litter of pups in 2011 in the Save Valley Conservancy, Zimbabwe, where we have a population of over 100 Painted Dogs.
Claw ‘s pack this year consists of 10 dogs, and I have seen mating activity between her and her mate, “Lizard” during the month of January.
We hope she will den in about may this year, and will keep you updated…..
In June/July 2013 we will support a Pedal4Paws bicycle ride, by Painted Wolf Wines and supporters, through the lowveld wild dog areas of Zimbabwe, plus a Safari Luncheon on 29th June, at Mukuvisi Woodlands in Harare.
follow my posts, join me for those events, and you will learn more about Claw and her family…..
