Recently, staff from the Taiyanghe Provincial Nature Reserve in southwest China's Yunnan Province discovered that their infrared cameras had captured images of the dhole, a first-class national protected animal in the country.

In the video, a dog-like species appeared on the screen. All told, at least five of the animals were counted.

After being identified, the animals were found to be a species of wild dog called the "dhole".

According to staff at the reserve, the appearance of the dhole will help play a role in balancing out the number of wild boars and other species in the area.
