African Wild Dog

African Wild Dog

I’m going to tell you about the African wild Dog because I think it is a very special  animal.  Previously lots of people saw it as vermin– like how we see rats– and people did not like them.

Now, their home’s are being destroyed by other animals and humans which makes it hard for them to raise their babies.  Also some painted wolves (another name for the wild dogs) can get hurt by other animals.

African Painted Wolves  can be dangerous and eat other animals. Baby painted wolf’s drink from their mum’s under body which means that they are a mammal. Painted wolf parents have a responsibility to protect their young.

The human’s, who are trying to help them, give them animal necklaces so they can track them and find them to see if they are ok. The collars check their heart rate.
