WARNING!!!!! The video contains footage of an entire hunt and shows and impala being killed by wild dogs, DO NOT watch if this is something you don't want to see. However brutal it may seem, this is truly survival of the fittest and mother nature in action, something I don't see every day and was "lucky" to see in Botswana. It was both shocking and amazing.

African Wild Dogs are the second most endangered carnivore in Africa after the Ethiopian wolf (according to some websites, others claim it to be the most endangered). Their numbers are dwindling due to people killing them because they are a danger to their livestock or they find them to be nuisances.

Currently in Botswana there are programs to help increase their numbers. At least one of the dogs in the video is collared with a tracking device. On the continent itself, there only remains about 3-5,000, in Bostwana, in the Moremi Game Reserve there is an estimated 150-200. (http://www.save-the-african-wild-dog....)
