David & Goliath: Wild dog chase off elephants

Desperate times call for desperate measures! The Timbavati has not had much rain thus far in the summer season, and temperatures continue to rise as the bush veld dries up. It is tough on some of the animals and as each treasured water hole starts to dry out, so they go on search of other water sources.

The elephants in this video had spent quite some time digging in the dry riverbed for underground water, and just as they were to be rewarded they were chased off by a small pack of wild dogs. This just goes to show that in the African bush size does not always count!
