Wild Dogs at Sundowner, South Luangwa

This just in from the Robin Pope newsletter from South Luangwa, Zambia: "Becky and Geno, along with Emma (wild dog researcher) drove to Lupunga Spur to set up special sundowners. The guests arrive. Champers well it was cold, wet and sparkling and snacks beautifully laid out. Suddenly fourteen dogs come running and whooping towards the truck. They are hunting. Yona told everyone to stand still and just watch. They ran around the area, literally getting twenty meters from the group, on the hunt. After fifteen minutes they killed an impala only eighty meters distance from the excited group, remaining obediently around the sundowner table. Emma the dog researcher thought this was an amazing way to study dogs, with drink in hand!"
And to think, I'll be there in a little over 2 weeks! SWEET!
