    BASENJI IN ETHIOPIA

    WITH THE BODI TRIBE

    by Monica Frelow

 
OUR THANKS to former member, Monica Frelow, for sharing
the. . .photograph (right) with us. Monica explains, "This photo-
graph was taken by Dr. Lawrence Frank around 3 October 1980.
The locality is a partially dried up tributary of the Omo River, 175
km north of Lake Turkana, Ethiopia. The dog is living with the
Nomadic Bodi tribe - mainly pastoral, growing sorghum on river
banks. The area is reached by floating 350 miles down river from
near the city of Abati. It's about a two week trip. The dog was
the only one seen with this group. Lawrence felt they may be
killed for meat . . ."
