DSLR show their true advantage under condition that most sport and wildlife photographers need AF shallow DOF, low light, subjects that change direction with varying speed, and multiple targets in the FOV.

I am pretty sure the way mirrorless cameras are progress in AF tracking (huge difference in just 2 years), it won't be long that they could match even D4.

Right now at least it's debatable whether under $2000 DSLRs are better at AF tracking than mirrorless according to several reviews (including DPR).

Mirror less still hasn’t caught up the K5 and the K5 sucks for AF tracking

The Camera is only a tool, photography is deciding how to use it.
The hardest part about capturing wildlife is not the photographing portion; it’s getting them to sign a model release
