African wild dogs were studied from 1967 to 1978 on the Serengeti Plains in northern Tanzania. The main objectives were to determine the status of the sub-population and to elucidate the ecology and behavior of this social carnivore. This paper describes the decline of the sub-population, the dynamics of pack composition, and patterns of dispersal.
