These Black-backed jackal pups (Canis mesomelas) were confiscated from kids who had dug them up from a burrow! They were subsequently taken to VulPro where they were then transferred to us to facilitate their rehabilitation journey.
Luckily, upon examination, there were no injuries, and all five are steadily growing and reaching their developmental milestones. They have a few weeks to go before the next step in their rehabilitation; a pre-release enclosure.
