Before I left to go on this research trip,
I might have told my family that if I ever get killed by an animal I want it to be a pack of African Wild Dogs. Quick, relatively painless, and incredibly adorable. Yup. It’s still my preferred way to go.

And yes, the large stick the gentleman is holding is in case the pack gets too rowdy and he needs to defend himself. Not that it would do much… but still.
