AFRICAN CAPE HUNTING DOG LATIN NAME lycaon pictus

STATUS RESIDENCY IN ZSL Endangered Into Africa

WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP THEM?

WHY THEM?

Farming communities can be given and taught how to use a variety of technology that can help them keep their domestic livestock safe. By making a hunting attempt appear more trouble than it is worth, half the battle is won.

Unique amongst their kind, they use markings of browns, blacks and white to distinguish individuals within a pack. They are resourceful with a 95% success rate for a kill and are seldom wasteful with their food, consuming far more than the average lion at a sitting. African Cape Hunting Dogs are also the second largest canid in the world.

Every farmer should be given free education and encouragement as to why these dogs are so vitally important, The government should also be encouraged to actively sponsor any farmer who works to co-exist with hunting dogs. Hunting dogs need to be seen not as a pest but as a helper.

They are cursorial hunters, meaning that they will give chase for long time periods. They are intelligent, thought to be capable of both instinctive and learned behaviours. They are also vital for the health of wild herds that humans also depend on. (Needs rewording)

WHY ARE THEY DISAPPEARING? Once widespread across Africa, numbers are now in rapid decline and now have become endangered. A pack requires a terrotorial range of 900 square miles in order to thrive in the competitive world around. This however brings them into direct confrontation with farming communities in Africa who see them as pests, actively shooting them on sight or going out of their way to kill them by using poison. This is being done on a wide scale and if this does not stop soon, it is likely that this creature will not be seen outside of Zoological breeding programs.

HOW DO THEY BENEFIT US? All Predators provide a useful service both for the species they hunt and for us as a whole. They will target the young, the old and the sick. This in turn forces the prey species to adapt, to become stronger than they were previously. It prevent diseased or sick animals from passing on faulty genes. This helps the stock to be strong and healthy and offers less chance of an African family contracting a bad desease from eating bad meat when they depend on wild stock in order to survive.
