Six endangered African painted dog puppies have received their first “hands-on” health check at Perth Zoo, Western Australia, footage released on May 28 shows.
The puppies, who were born in March 2021, passed the health check “with flying colours”, the zoo said.
Painted dogs are endangered and are “considered the most persecuted large carnivore in Africa”, according to the zoo. This footage shows the puppies being checked over by zoo staff. Credit: Perth Zoo via Storyful
