We were fortunate to encounter a pack of 10 Dholes(Indian Wild Dogs) just after they took down a sambar deer while on an AM game drive. One, two or three at a time, they took turns feeding on the carcass. Light wasn't great, but this was certainly one of the highlights of the trip.

Like the packs of African Hunting Dogs, these Dholes certainly get the job done. Nice sleek, healthy looking specimen, John, and a nice clear view - what a shame the light was so flat when you got such an opportunity to get some shots.
