  1. Roger says:

    Yashaswini (RVCZS) – What factors do you think contribute to their success rates as predators?

  2. Roger says:

    Nadia (BUVZS) – Do individuals in a pack of wild dogs get an equal share of the prey? If not, how do they divide the prey that they catch?

  3. Roger says:

    Izzy (Notts) – I was reading about how the dominant male and female produce the majority of pups for a group of dogs, is this reducing genetic diversity within the species?

  4. Roger says:

    Izzy (Notts) – Are there any wild dog and domestic dog interactions and do these have any impact on the species~ spread of disease, mating etc.

  5. Roger says:

    Josh (GUVZS) – When would you intervene in a case where a Wild Dog was injured, how would you go about isolating and treating the animal away from the herd and then how would you release?

  6. Roger says:

    Max (RVCZS) – Living in large packs with usually one dominant breeding pair, could you talk about pup rearing in Wild Dogs? Is the responsibility shared by non parental members of the pack?

  7. Roger says:

    Max (RVCZS) – When you intervene and treat individual wild dogs, do you also give them any vaccinations? If so, do you vaccinate for similar pathogens found in domestic dogs?

  8. Roger says:

    Kat (DVWCS) – If treating a wild dog do you screen for any diseases or issues that would cause them to be unreleasable? Similar to how feral cats are sometimes screened for FIV and FeLV.

  9. Roger says:

    Layla (NUVZS) – I’m aware wild dogs can be seen as vermin sometimes to farmers because of their hunting, what do you think is the best way of altering this opinion and creating a better relationship?

  10. Roger says:

    Nicole (IVSA) – Do wild dogs struggle to compete with other larger, dominant predators or are other predators much of a threat to their population compared with humans?
