Cape Town - A caracal has killed at least 20 African penguins in two weeks at Burghers Walk in Simon's Town, the City of Cape Town said on Thursday.Plans are afoot to capture the wildcat to prevent the loss of more of the endangered species, environmental officer Arne Purves said."We have video and photo footage of the caracal [preying on] the penguins. We plan to capture it with a walk-in trap and collar it before releasing it back into the Table Mountain National Park."SANParks spokesperson Merle Collins said they would help monitor the penguin population and help any injured birds found in and around the colony."Given the conservation status of the endangered African penguin, SANParks will closely be monitoring events and will support the City and Sanccob to capture and safely relocate the caracal to an area away from the penguin colony," she said.Sanccob is the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds.In August 2015, dogs were temporarily banned along Burghers’ Walk to Links Crescent after eight endangered African penguins were killed in two days.The overall population of the species at the time was estimated to be 2.5% of its population level some eight decades ago.
