What happened to the alpha pups?
I was surprised to find the pack nearly in the same place this morning. They were on the move already but only the adults and BB’s pups. I was sure the alpha pups were close by in the thicker bush, but no joy.
The adults hunted down near the Chiredzi river in the Acacia woodlands where I’ve always wanted to film them chasing after impala. But alas they reached there just at first light which is still to dark for filming.
Hunting as they do they often get split up in this thick bush and one adult killed an impala on its own, later having to call the rest of the pack back to the feast. And eventually only when a second reconnaissance party went out did they find the alpha pups. What had those naughtly little teenagers been up to?
