Debrigarh wildlife sanctuary in Western Odisha must currently be one of the very few PAs in the country where dholes and wolves co-exist! Interestingly, sporadic reports in March 2013 by frontline staff seem to indicate that the lone male wolf, which made its appearance about a month back, has been hanging around near the pack of dholes. In fact, the RFO could see them interacting in close proximity for extended periods of time — feigning charges, scent marking, etc.
The 354 sq km Debrigarh Wildlife Sanctuary comprises Lohara & Debrigarh reserved forests of the famous Barapahad hills of Bargarh District.

Chosen as 'Picture of the Week'
Once in a blue moon, a truly remarkable photograph emerges - like this one from Debrigarh, Odisha, showing an Indian wolf and a dhole pack hanging out together. While it's heart warming to see them all looking healthy and relaxed, the picture begs the question, where is the rest of the wolf pack?
