Wild Dogs stolen from Liuwa national park

African wild dogs have vanished from Liuwa national park in western province in unclear circumstances, authorities said on Monday.

The wild dogs were last spotted in Liuwa National Park in 2013  (PF came in power in 2011) while operations to establish their whereabouts have proved futile, Gabriel Masaku, Liuwa Area Warden, said.

Masaku said during a meeting with traditional leaders who raised concerns over the disappearance of the wild dogs that it was difficult to trace the animals because they were not fitted with satellite collars, according to state broadcaster, the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation.

During the meeting, the traditional leaders said African wild dogs were one of the prides of the national park and wondered how all the packs could have migrated from the ecosystem where they have lived for centuries.
