Endangered Asiatic Wild Dogs Spotted In China Nature Reserve
30 April 2016 Current Affairs: Endangered asiatic wild dogs were in news in the last week of April 2016 as the nature reserve in northwest China's Gansu Province has declared it had spotted Nine dholes, or Asiatic wild dogs. These animals are rarely seen in the inland province.

The movement of the animals were photographed with the infrared cameras in Yanchiwan National Nature Reserve on the north margin of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.Researchers also found various traces of the wild dog, such as footprints and droppings.The photographs and evidence found will prove to be important material for the research and protection of the species since not much is known about dholes that live across the plateau regions.

Dholes are highly social animals that live in central, south and southeast Asia.The species lives mainly in south China's mountains and hills are under second-class state protection.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) also included the animal on the Red List of Threatened Species.
