Hunt Club

Hunt Club

Apartheid-style posses are bent on preserving their gun-wielding ways, and they've picked on jackals to justify their cause and just what is it that causes a certain breed of man in a traditionally patriarchal society to scurry for his gun at the site of a wild animal?

Those who regularly also read outdoor magazines (shooting, hunting) will be able to form a more balanced view. Add to that the two major agricultural magazines and you will not make statements about things not tested. I am going to make a statement, which is just an opinion based on the history of the predator animals: "We will NEVER exterminate the jackal." we have been trying for 300 years without success. Jackals adapt. Little food, bigger territories, smaller litters; Much food, smaller territories, bigger litters. My opinion : farmers may hunt predetors killing their stock, parks officials may NOT interfere in parks.

Jackals can best be described as opportunistic omnivores, how can Dr Smuts who is a medical doctor, prove conclusively that jackal would not eat sheep or lambs if the opportunity arose?

Hope to read an article in the next Noseweek about how it is to be a sheep farmer in a Jackal and Caracal infested part of the country... that would be a ballanced view, wouldn't it?
