At Satpura tiger reserve there population is healthy but sighting is not easy or we can say its sighting is occasional. In local language, they are called Sonkutta or Sonha which simply means golden dog due to there rufous body color. They are highly social animals thus most of the time found in groups of 4 to 20. Despite of there social nature, they are often terms as ruthless killing machine with high level of stemina to chase and kill down the prey. There prey are mostly spotted deer, sambar, wild boar, cinkara etc.
