Wild Dogs on Tumaren

I was out working on one of our camps today situated high on our rock outcrop called Ol Donyo Nanyuki when i saw these wild dogs sleeping below me. they never saw me but they did appear spooky, jumping up at make beleive things behind them then settling down again for more rest. its always exciting seeing the wild dogs but it was only afterwards when i was looking at our pictures that i noticed one had been collared. This will have been put on by the good folks at the Mpala research center who run, among all sorts of other research a wild dog project. you can read more here (unfortunately you can see that the image that WCS has used is from Tanzania or southern Africa – Sable aren’t from Laikipia!):

Mpala Ranch hosts the research but i couldn’t find anything on their website – why, i don’t know.
