This is only the third time in the past five years that I am aware of that wild dogs have been spotted in the Mara Triangle.  I belive that the other times they were spotted they were around the Serengeti border and near the Serena.  This time I think that they were spotted by the Serena and also by the Oloololo gate. I hope that they stay in the Reserve or head south t the Serengeti. Does anyone have any details of other wild dog sightings in the Triangle?  I believe that there may also be a small population in Mara North (Aitong area).

One of them is collared so it should be known where they are from. There are only three and I bet they are all the same sex and a dispersal group, not likely to hang around.
