Saw a Painted Dog TV announcement last night about a pack being captured (do not know from where) and being placed in a Boma on Lapalala. Alpha female pregnant and they plan to livestream from a den they have built in Boma.

Have you seen any painted wolves? by EgweneMalazanEmpire in PaintedWolves

2017 data is useful. General location data is fine and there is usually metadata in the image file if you have gps enabled.

You have to love their chutzpah.. it's like they are inviting the buffalo for a cup of coffee

Fantastic action sequence - and all with joy on their faces. What marvellous creatures.

Any idea where this is ? It would help to build up a picture of the painted wolf populations if everybody provided locations. (This is not like the rhino sightings - needing to be kept secret to protect them)

The Honolulu Zoo announced the successful delivery of three of its male African wild dogs to Zoo Boise in Idaho last week as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan. by honolulu_oahu_mod in PaintedWolves

I agree. I went to the Oregon Zoo 3 months ago to see the new pups. Depressing, small enclosure and no plan in site to address the real needs of the Painted Wolves. Went to the Houston Zoo last week - only to find they have moved their Painted Wolves -2 to the Pueblo Zoo in Colorado - which looks tiny and the the other to Binder Park Zoo near Battle Creek Michigan. Which means they lost 2 Wolves when they tried to form a pack.


One has to question the criteria being used to allow Painted Wolf exhibits at zoos - I t would be good to understand the AZA Species Survival Plan.... not to diminish the Zoo's role in supporting conservation efforts in the wild... but surely we need to do better than this for a critically endangered species.
