Hi- sorry if I'm doing this wrong or maybe in the wrong forum

I'm just wondering if that is a dog I see at Tembe- it has the mannerisms of a dog that doesn't know what to do. I'm just sort of worried about it.

Thanks, krukab. It looked like a poodle to me. I was wishing the camera was active and would zoom in on it.

the dog you see at tembe is a side stripe jackal

nothing wrong with the animal

I could only see a silhouette of the animal. It looked like a dog- a lost, fuzzy dog. I don't think it was a jackal- The animal wanted to get to the other side of the water and kept walking back and forth along the edge.

Sorry, but I did not see what you saw so I can't say, but my guess would be a Jackal.  They often appear to be very nervous.
