Why Are African Wild Dogs Endangered?
By Debra Durkee eHow Contributor I want to do this! What's This? Why Are African Wild Dogs Endangered? African wild dogs were once a common sight across most of Africa, from scrublands and savannas to thin woodlands. Now, for a variety of reasons, the sight of a wild dog is much more rare.
With a Latin name that means "painted wolf," African wild dogs are on the same family tree as jackals and coyotes. Light, lithe and graceful, wild dogs live in nomadic packs whose numbers are slowly dwindling.
Loss of habitat
  • As the human population multiplies, and cities, towns and villages expand, the room for the wandering packs of wild dogs grows smaller.
  • Persecution from humans
  • As the space in which humans and wild dogs exist grows smaller, there is a direct conflict between the two, which often results in dogs being killed out of fear. Many are killed by hunters and poachers.

  • Loss of habitat is particularly critical for nomadic animals like the African wild dog. Hunting dog packs range over very large areas from 600 to more than 1,500 square miles (1,560-3,900 sq km) a year. Even large parks may not provide enough territory to support viable dog populations.
  • Four legs are faster than two; in a sprint, African wild dogs can reach speeds of more than 40 miles per hour (65 km/h). Compare this to Olympic champion Michael Johnson, who set a (human) world record when he attained a top speed of about 23 miles per hour (37 km/h).
  • African wild dogs have an unusual breeding system. Only one pair of dogs reproduces in a pack; other pack members act cooperatively to care for the young of the breeding pair. It has been said that African wild dogs are the most social of all mammals, never living apart from a pack at any stage in their lives.
  • African wild dogs have a very strong, musky odor, which may help the pack find individuals that have become separated from the group.

    The African Wild Dog is also known as the Cape Hunting Dog and can be found in South Africa and in the eastern parts of the Sahara. This animal is one of the most endangered animals in the world – it is Africa’s most endangered carnivores. The number of African Wild Dogs on the African continent is estimated to be below 4000, of which only approximately 400 – 500 can be found in South Africa. The reason for this is that for many years people regarded the African Wild Dog as a pest and often confused this animal with the hyena, a scavenger. The African Wild Dog and the Hyena look remarkably alike, but there are differences in their appearances and especially in their hunting and feeding habits. Hyenas have a duller coat than the brightly “painted” African Wild Dog. Whereas hyenas are all similar in looks, no two African Wild Dogs look exactly the same. Their legs are long and spindly and their ears are large and roundish. Their fur is a mixture of different colours – black, white and yellow. They only have four toes on each forefoot.

    Home Facts Page Natural History Community Project You Can Help Partners ... Site Map AWD Conservancy Why Are African Wild Dogs Endangered? Wild dogs were once widely distributed throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Today, viable populations may exist in only a handful of countries. Habitat loss and human persecution are the main causes of decline. Wild dogs fall victim to snaring, shooting, and speeding vehicles on roadways. This graphic picture is of a yearling female that died in a snare set by a poacher for antelope. Disease such as rabies and distemper may also threaten some wild dog populations. The increasing needs of a growing human population place greater demands on natural resources, inevitably shrinking the living space for wildlife. The African Wild Dog Conservancy is committed to community-based research and education to help conserve this unique canid.

    Cape Town
    It has taken me a while to write this final entry. It’s a little intimidating to try to sum up 4 months in which a nutty dream became an intense reality. That reality hit extremes of hopelessness and euphoria, and just about every stop in between.
    We rolled into South Africa and then Cape Town in good spirits. I had thought through the finish line ceremonies and goodbyes, and despite (and due to) warnings that it would get emotional, I was nonchalantly videotaping all the way in. I stood at the line filming riders meeting their families and loved ones when someone tapped me on the shoulder. Was it someone asking for change? It seemed unlikely but not impossible. Maybe press? Probably. Interviewers and video cameras were swarming the riders. I turned to face my girlfriend Melanie.
    But she was in Toronto. Or at least I had been looking forward, since the trip began, to flying to Toronto to see her at the end of the trip. But she was here. And so not in Toronto. It took me about 4 hours to get over the shock, confusion, and excitement. Mel had spent two weeks touring Cape Town and Namibia, hitting a few of the same spots as the tour only days before or afterwards, but had waited until the finish to surprise me. Once I became conscious of reality again we traveled South Africa together. I have never been more surprised in my life than I was at the finish and I have never been happier in my life than in the past two weeks. How’s that for a nice ending?

    Theresa Sylvester Yahoo! Contributor Network
    Apr 20, 2007 "Contribute content like this. Start Here The African wild dog's scientific name is Lycaon pictus. This means "painted wolf". This is an appropriate name for the African wild dog. Its coat has patches and swirls of black, gray, yellow and white. Its muzzle however is most often black and the tail tip white without any variations. Unlike most other canines the African wild dog has four toes on each foot. The African wild dog lacks the dewclaw which is a digit that is higher up on the limb than the others. On most dogs it is on the inside of the front legs. The dewclaw does not touch the floor when standing.
    African wild dogs are very social animals living in packs of 30 or more individuals. A litter of African wild dog consists of about 10-12 pups. The female is pregnant for 69-73 days. Only the dominant pair of the pack breeds, however the entire pack helps take care of the young. They protect them and regurgitate food for them until they are old enough to hunt which usually is around 12 months old. The average African wild dog lives about 10 years.
    The entire pack hunts together allowing them to hunt large prey. Because of this, their diet tends to consist of wildebeest, zebra and impala. They also eat grey duiker, steenbok and younger individuals of larger species of antelope as well. When hunting the pack picks out a weak or injured individual than chases it until it can not run any longer. The dogs then kill their prey quickly and feed on it. African wild dogs hunt during the day.
