Today I got this email from the Bean’s school:
Many of you are probably aware that a small pack of Wild Dog has been very active on Raptor’s View for the past week and a half. Recently the dogs have been very busy on the northern part of the reserve including on school property. Although all staff and learners have been given clear guidelines regarding movement around the campus we would like to reiterate the following:
Although, as far as our knowledge stretches, there have been no recorded cases of Wild Dog hunting or attacking humans, we should remain aware of the fact that these animals are large predators and they are wild. They are also in a very small reserve and may not behave as we would expect in a bigger wilderness area. We therefore recommend that young children (Prep School) should not walk on their own without adult supervision. Pre-schoolers are particularly vulnerable and should not be left on their own, unattended out doors. At all times older learners must walk in pairs. No learners should be permitted to walk alone on the school campus. We will keep you posted as to the movements of the dogs.
