Al ooit ’n brandsiek jakkals gesien?

2016-02-11 06:00

Dit is algemeen bekend dat brandsiekte onder diere soos wildsbokke en vee voorkom, maar kan ’n jakkals ook dié nare siekte kry?

“In die wolbedryf is brandsiekte ‘n erns-tige en aanmeldbare siekte waarvoor boere op die uitkyk moet wees,” sê Bonita Francis van die nasionale wolkwekers-vereniging.

“Dit is egter grootliks onbekend of roof- diere ook brandsiekte kan opdoen. Daarom wil ons graag weet of daar al ooit in die Karoo en Limpopo rooijakkalse met brandsiekte waargeneem is.”

Dr. Gerhard Verdoorn, roofdierspesialis verneem graag van produsente of hulle wel al ooit brandsiekte onder rooijakkalse waargeneem het. Indien wel, sal hy graag daarvan wil weet.

  • Stuur enige waarnemings of inligting aan Gerhard Verdoorn by of bel 082 446 8946 vir verdere navrae.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
