The Pretenders Mob were formed in January 2009, when the Sequoia Mob split up. The group consisted of Finn, Van Der Wethuizen, VSQF003, VSQM004, VSQP006 and VSQP010. Sid Vicious joined the group after an encounter with Sequoia while Van Der Wethuizen returned to the Sequoia. Throughout 2009 the group was sighted but not followed, until October 2009. During that time the dominant female, Finn, had died. VPTF001 assumed the role of dominant female after Finn's death. Sid Vicious remained dominant until December 2009 when he disappeared along with subordinate male VPTM003. Shortly after a wild male joined the group and took dominance. In January 2010, two wild males emigrated, one bringing a pup along with him. In February 2010, VPTF001 died and the Pretenders were lost.
