I have been travelling over the weekend to a neighboring ranch called Eselenkei. On my journey I came across a livestock owner who was very angry because two of his animals had been killed by a carnivore that he claims to be very rare.


He told me that the attack had happened at around 5.30 in the early evening and that his young herder had seen the carnivores. As well as the two killed, four young calves were left with injuries, but luckily they will survive. So, what do you think these rare carnivores were? Here are some of the tracks that I saw. Can you help identify them?



Apologies for the slightly strange look of the blog at the moment – Wildlife Direct are currently working on the layout of the site!

    my guest the carnivore was a wild dog or a pck of wild dog.

    That would be quite rare to see here. Maybe you are right! Any other guesses?

    sauwah is right… I am the culprit.

    I was going to say the wild dog. Wow!
    Shame there’s no photos.

    Great! Thanks everyone for your comments. It looks like we may have found the culprit!
