I wonder if it doesn't have a bone stuck in its mouth. It's happened to our dogs once or twice and they've done that same thing with their mouth. -O-

WATCH: Unsuspecting Warthog Finds Itself In Hot Water With A Pack Of Wild Dogs (Warning: Graphic Content)

phpBB [video]


It's no secret a pack of wild dogs can be vicious hunters, and this video reinforces that stereotype.

Captured by Private Safari Guide, Rudi Venter (31), he told Latestsightings.com of his experience.

The warthog ran into the water for protection but this didn't help. In the video you can see how the wild dogs grab hold of the warthog and start pulling him out of the water.

Venter explains that it seems like the adult dogs appear to give it onto the younger dogs to practice their skills.

I wonder where this is? ^Q^

Amazing how many incidents are recorded of animals fleeing wild dog that take refuge in water! :shock: :-?
