Wild Dog Plays Dead To Escape Lion

    Calvet, a forty-nine-year-old African Bush Camps’ guide, and his guests from Somalisa Camp were on a game drive in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, when they came across a pack of wild dogs that just finished eating a kudu but ended up being too close to a lioness!

    There was another vehicle from Somalisa Camp at the sighting (it can be seen in the video) and both vehicles had around 4 guests in it.

    The wild dogs had killed a kudu and spent most of the day resting and cooling off in the pan. However, in the afternoon they were spotted by a female lion. The lioness is one of Cecil's daughters who is nursing cubs not too far from Chris pan, where the sighting took place, and she is a bit of a celebrity there in Hwange National Park.
    With her eyes fixed on the pack, Cecil’s daughter crouched and started to stalk, and in the flash of a moment, she pounced and managed to grab one of the dogs. As you can hear on the audio of the video, the Somalisa guests were in a slight state of shock, as the attack of the lioness came rather immediate and as a surprise.

    The lioness held onto the wild dog for a long time which seemed lifeless in her grip and many already believed it was already dead, as it stayed completely still. The Somalisa guests felt helpless for the captured wild dog and had almost given up hope for him. When another member of the pack approached the lioness, she sprang into action, attacking the other wild dog ferociously.
    Then, to the surprise of everyone watching, the previously caught wild dog got up and was able to make his escape. The guests were very relieved at this and were amazed to see how the wild dog was able to pretend to be dead for so long.
    Both wild dogs have been confirmed to have survived the attack unharmed. This incident took place two or so weeks ago and our follow up sees that the wild dog, named “Notch,” is still alive and seemingly healthy, which is a relief as he is the alpha male of the pack, which we call the “Kennedy pack.” The alpha female, called “Storm” is very pregnant, so some pups are hopefully on the way as well. We couldn't identify the second dog grabbed but it has also been confirmed to have survived.
    This is an extremely rare sighting and Calvet himself has never seen such a scenario in over ten years as a safari guide. His advice to someone who might have this same experience one day is to “keep an eye out for the underdog and to never underestimate wild dogs!”

      Let this be a canine lesson: There are consequences for working with the police as a drug-sniffer/snitch.

      Wasn't going to escape that grip. Once it let go it got up with the quickness.

    29. Facundo Kar

      Thats actually a hyena

      1. Gi Gi

        Nope, cape hunting dog (aka African hunting dog). Hyenas have sports too, but they are quite different to look at

      Die Kommentare hier sind von extrem geringer Qualität. Ich bin sicher, dass die Gesellschaft ein großes Problem hat, wenn Kommentare wie diese von anderen geistig zurückgebliebenen Kommentatoren gepriesen werden, die sich alle einig sind und auch miteinander kämpfen.

      How great luck of mine that I am human in this birth. I will do such that I don't get again such animal births and deaths. Very fearful horrible and senseless is the wildlife. As are one's seeds and deeds so are the fruits one gets. LIVE AND LET LIVE ALL is now my life because causing sufferings fetch sufferings and mercy pity fetch mercy pity. I repent my all old birth's sins. All feel pains exactly like me. LIVE AND LET LIVE all living beings with full courage. This is really something great to make one real great for the success of this great human birth. This will bring an end to all my sins of old births and future sufferings for ever.

    36. Winston Niles

      I don't deny that animals are smarter than humans give them credit for......problem solving mentality....strait up....but what we've got here in my opinion is an opportunistic wild dog. Once in the death grip.....animals tend to go limp for two reasons....it hurts to struggle....and loss of consciousness.....the lioness dropped the limp dog to chase another and that dog took advantage of the situation......not without traumatic damage though....it'll be a while before its brave enough to get that close to a lion again......it just knew it was dead......lol if that lion was a male.....it would of been....period

    37. Nitesh Vallabh

      Lioness will preach all men are Dogs....😂

    38. Game Play 2k19

    39. Don Carbon

      Believe me, that Dog died the same day

    40. mikhiel troyah

      That's the best acting I've ever seen! Around 4:44 the lioness tightened and repositioned the choke hold and hyena didnt flinch! That had to be scary and painful and he didn't drop character!

      1. Denia wiseone

        Wild dog hun :)

    41. Scott Feuerhammer

      I thought that was a hyena.

    42. _Shadow ツ

    44. Pain

      He was probably holding his breath too...

    45. Joshua John

      The world where dogs run away from cats 😂

      1. Gi Gi

        Ever own cats & dogs at the same time? Some cats run, but others know they are the cousins of lions lol Nothing funnier that a +100lbs dog scampering away from a puffed up kitten!

    46. WWE Lover

      Dog took a peaceful nap in the lion's mouth

    47. j s

      Lioness: stay right here am going to catch some more for later Wild dog: Not today b*tch, am out

      1. Gi Gi

        Why? Dingo are your baby?

    49. Al-Jafar Enidal

      That wild dog will have a legendary story for his cubs and to his grand cubs in the future. 'The art of fooling an apex predator'.

    50. Tamang Jivan

    51. Sprite Bonn

      Alright a video of somebody missing the action. Why put these stupid videos on if you know the person behind the camera end up capturing video of a truck and it's tires🤣

    52. Diontae Daughtry

      The dog was practicing to be in the Lion King.

    53. Sean- E

      Stupid fuxking humans... they have no busniess being there. I wish they would all get ripped apart by the wildlife! Forreal

    54. Faico Hernández

      Delicioso. Guauuuu

    55. C K

      The lioness would have killed the wild dog, but the other wild dog distracted her...

    56. J.R. Productions

      Did he still die tho? Cuz he didn't get up well.

    57. Adiastra Teja

      1:04 Thats how do you run from your responsibility

    58. what the Phu Qouc

      Can retard youtube poster say " hyena" ? Poster must be a moron Democrat! Trump 2020!

    59. transamericasec

      Exit stage right even! Nice try!!

    60. Anubis that dedly Doggo

      Goddamn thats cool they drew its attention away for him to escape these dogs are clever af

    61. icesco415

      Dog was not playing dead. Dog knew it was helpless. It was just lucky enough to escape because lioness let go its neck to attack other dog.

    62. Blazko612

      Tricky dog !😁 Hey camera-man ! Nice video 👌but in a critical momment you lost the focus, 😴too bad !😣

    63. Vic Solvalu

      that looks like a hyena to me

    64. Tony Montana

      Lost your lunch you dumb ass cat



    66. Aux X

      She says “no, no, no” like the wild dogs would be her friends if she was left alone with them. Btw, worst lion. She’s for sure getting roasted by the rest of her pride. But c’mon lady. This is nature. I’m on team “gotta eat”.

    67. Terell Nelson

      It's amazing how that wilddog played dead to escape the lion

    68. Gwil Roberts

      I wonder if the wild dog will die anyway from the injures from the lions fangs puncturing the dog's neck despite escaping the jaws of death with a sheer bit of luck. I hope the wild dog will heal from the wounds.
