    Angry Kgalagadi People Feeding Jackals at Cubitje Quap October 2017

    At the 24.1017 we were on our way from Nossob to Mata Mata, having hooked the trailer already to the car.
    We decided to make a quick drive up to CQ. The waterhole was full, about 6, 7 cars all around.

    What than happened made me so furious that i did what I never did before,
    I reported someone to the rangers at Nossob for feeding a Jackal.

    We were stuck with our trailer behind the guys, which were obviously experienced photographers
    with two long lenses looking out of their windows, but lucky them we could not get near to them.

    What made me even more furious was, that NONE of the other guys around,
    right and left of them did say or do anything. The feeding went on quite a few times,
    the Jackal was used to be fed.

    How can you do this

    Why block the number plates?

    People like this should be made public and be banned from entering wildlife areas - if you want to view such activities - spare all of us the trouble and visit a rehab center where they have feedings sessions which you can photograph

    Appreciate your actions - Southerndreams. Then we wonder why animals habits / character start to change - for better or worse. It is difficult to believe people would do this and not realise the potential implications. Now the reported leopard attack at Matopi. I must say that I am also guilty of putting out a little dish of water to divert bees that were a big nuisance at some camp sites in CKGR - tried to "divert" them - it never worked.

    It is criminal, like feeding vervet monkeys. ooops sorry that word. (monkey) my bad.

    Seriously this unbalances nature, these jackal now have a higher plane of nutrition, therefore older and younger animals breed, weaker animals that should die out survive and the wrong numbers of the wrong sort are now out there.

    As mentioned if you are like that go take your pics at a rehab center not pics of you handing a jackal a sandwich.

    Well done Southerndreams - none of us likes to be a nanny but sometimes you have to take a stand. What was the reaction of the Nossob rangers - do you think they followed up at all?

    The Nossob ranger copied my pics from the cameras SD card and did send it straight to TR rangers. I hope they got them.

    I blocked the number plates as it could still be someone elses car, a rental car etc.

    If I would have been without trailer i would have driven straight in front of them between them and the waterhole,
    and told them my opinion.

    This is where a kettie would be handy maybe. Shoot at the ground close to the jackal to scare him off. Make him afraid of humans. Maybe bounce the stone off the feeding vehicle.... Makes me mal as well!

    I will refrain from commenting on this jakkal incident, lest i be accused of contempt for the Bushlapa brand 8)

    I was camping at Malelane just after New Year and the guy camping next to me, who was a very very nice guy i might add, was telling me his son worked as a ranger for a well known private concession between Malelane gate and Skukuza. What perturbed me was the fact that as soon as the evening meal was done they would toss all their bones over the fence for the Hyena. Now clearly one would think that having a son in conservation that he as the head of the family would discourage such behavior, in fact condemn it. Needless to say, it happened all 4 nights i camped there. I must admit though, the son was not present when this was happening.

    What made me almost MORE furious, that none of the "bystanders" nor left or right nor opposite did anything or say anything.
    There were another 6 or 7 vehicles at CQ.
