One of the most beautiful animals currently occupying our planet. Terribly endangered though, there’s a large movement to try and change people’s perspective of the animals as they are hated among locals (understandably, they are brutal killers and a nuisance to livestock) and the name “wild dogs” gives foreigners the impression that they are feral. They’re often overlooked by conservation efforts especially those with the interest of protecting lions in mind as they are in direct competition with one another.
These animals are not dogs at all. They’re a completely different lineage of canines as wolves. There are efforts to rebrand them as painted dogs or painted wolves.
