Herd of elephants show pack of wild dogs who’s boss

A safari guide at the Sabi Sands Game Reserve in South Africa came across a pack of wild dogs getting too close to a herd of elephants.



A herd of elephants have been captured fiercely protecting their young from a pack of wild dogs in South Africa.

Guide Brent Leo-Smith came across the stand-off in Djuma Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands, the north-east of the country. The tour guide slowly follows the wild dogs from behind in a vehicle.




The dogs are heading down a path when suddenly the elephants appear from the bushes. The nine dogs are outnumbered by their colossal opponents who start to roar and intimidate them.

The elephants group together and stand their ground as the dogs flee one by one. Even the young calf charges with the elephants who then form a protective ring around the more vulnerable animal.




Elephants notoriously hate predators and were really not happy about the wild dogs being in their space.
