Spirited Demise
πŸ“½ by @michael.laubsher

Painted wolves make quick work of a baby antelope.

African wild dogs (painted wolves, painted dogs, cape hunting dog… they have a lot of names) are some of the most efficient and successful hunters on the African continent.

They are masters of persistence hunting, often chasing prey for miles until they collapse. Packs of these incredible canines can sustain an average speed of 40mph (64km/h) for up to an hour by taking turns leading the chase, while the rest of the pack hangs back in anticipation of taking their place in the rotation.

Their success rate is the highest of all predators on the African plain, ranging between 60% – 90%. For comparison, lions operate at an average success rate of 20% – 30%.
