Africa – The Painted Dog – uncovered shocking story

When a team goes to South Africa to relocate some rare wild dogs, they uncover a shocking story. The dogs are bred and sold to zoos worldwide, even though their numbers in the wild are dwindling.
This investigative report reveals the hidden trade in Africa’s rare wild hunting dogs. It’s a trade that was denied by the people meant to protect them – We were unaware of trading being a significant issue in wild dog conservation, explains Dr Claudio Sillero. A trade that stretches from the dogs homeland in Africa, to China and America. With only 3000 dogs remaining in the wild, will action be taken fast enough to save them?
