Wildebeest, although being herbivores, are often watched and hunted by predators, but they are not easy prey. With their aggressive nature, they do not hesitate to fight back when attacked, whether the opponent is a cheetah or a lion.
After hitting the prey, the African wild dogs decided to separate the two wildebeest mother and daughter from the herd to easily act.
Once they have succeeded in step one, they continue to pull the baby antelope away from its mother. Some other animals use the east and west attack to distract the mother antelope, unable to both save her baby and protect herself.However, their efforts still cannot overcome the sacred motherhood. Despite being constantly attacked by wild dogs, the mother antelope did not give up her young. It even confronts stubborn carnivores to save its children from sharp teeth.
In the end, the bloodthirsty wild dogs gave up and let the mother and daughter leave.
The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), also called the painted dog or Cape hunting dog, is a wild canine which is a native species to sub-Saharan Africa. It is the largest wild canine in Africa, and the only extant member of the genus Lycaon, which is distinguished from Canis by dentition highly specialised for a hypercarnivorous diet, and by a lack of dewclaws. It is estimated that about 6,600 adults (including 1,400 mature individuals) live in 39 subpopulations that are all threatened by habitat fragmentation, human persecution, and outbreaks of disease. As the largest subpopulation probably comprises fewer than 250 individuals, the African wild dog has been listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List since 1990.
