This has to rank as one of the most special sightings I’ve ever experienced ... an incredible Dhole and Elephant interaction. The elephants are clearly not impressed by the Dholes presence and constantly chased them trumpeting and even kicking! The Dholes are very comfortable in their ability to avoid the elephant and when they eventually moved on they made a successful kill of a Spotted Deer stag.
The dhole (also known as the Asiatic Wild Dog, Indian Wild Dog and the Red Dog) is an endangered wild dog native to the jungles of Asia. Although the dhole is very similar in appearance to the African Wild dog and the Bush dog, the dhole is the only member of it's genus.
Due to the dominant nature of the dhole and the fact that it often has protection from it's pack, there are few animals that are of any threat to the dhole in the wild. Large wild cats such as tigers and leopards are the only natural predators of the dhole, as the biggest threat to the world's dhole populations has been from humans.
