   The Okavango Delta in Botswana, a country in southern Africa, is a natural paradise. It is the perfect place to live for large numbers of predators, including lions, leopards, hyenas, jackals, African wild dogs, and more. Competition between these dangerous animals is brutal. Once there were huge packs of African wild dogs living in the delta on Mombo Island. Thanks to competition from the other predators, however, all but one of the wild dogs left the area. The last wild dog is named Solo, and she is the star of National Geographic's A Wild Dog's Tale.
   For six months after the other wild dogs left, Solo hunted by herself and avoided other predators. African wild dogs are born to work as a pack, so it is amazing that she survived for months all alone. After a while, something surprising happened—Solo began making friends with the other predators in the area. She even raised some jackal pups as her own. Now, a new pack of African wild dogs has appeared in the delta, and Solo must choose to stay with her adopted family or return to her own kind. Tune in to National Geographic's A Wild Dog's Tale this month to find out how Solo's story ends.

                        在非洲南部國家波札那的歐卡萬哥三角洲是個大自然的仙境。它是個適合包括獅子、豹、鬣狗、豺狼及非洲野狗等許多掠食者生活的地方。這些危險動物間的競爭是很殘忍的。曾有大群的非洲野狗生活在蒙博島的三角洲。然而,由於其他掠食者的競爭,除了其中一隻野狗以外所有的野狗都離開了該區。最後的這一隻野狗叫索蘿,她就是國家地理《豺犬傳奇》的主角。
   其他野狗離開後的六個月以來,索蘿自己獵食並避開其他掠食者。非洲野狗天生成群活動,因此她能獨自生存好幾個月是很令人驚奇的。過了一陣子,令人驚訝的事發生了 ── 索蘿開始和該區的其他掠食者做朋友。她甚至把一些小豺狼當作自己的小孩養育。現在,新來的一群非洲野狗出現在三角洲了,而索蘿必須選擇留在寄養家庭或回到她的族群裡。這個月敬請鎖定國家地理《豺犬傳奇》一探索蘿故事的結局。
