This is the sound of African Wild Dog pups suckling in the safety of their den.
On the 4th of July we spotted the first sighting of the Wild Dog pups at Jock Safari Lodge. They were denning by a rocky outcrop on the concession and the Endangered Wildlife Trust had set up a camera trap outside the den to monitor the pack.
The Jock Safari Lodge concession is within a remote area of the Kruger National Park, South Africa. The dogs are wild and researchers and film crews have not interfered with the natural behavior of the animals.
