Densities of spotted hyaena (Crocuta crocuta) and African golden wolf (Canis anthus) increase with increasing anthropogenic influence

Abstract:

We report densities of spotted hyaena (Crocuta crocuta) and African golden wolf (Canis anthus) in Enderta district in northern Ethiopia with high human and low natural prey densities. We estimated spotted hyaena and African golden wolf abundance and characterized their spatial distribution with three methods: we surveyed four road-transects for 66 nights during dry (n=41) and wet (n=25) seasons, we used 34 calling stations and we mapped all active spotted hyaena dens at the time of the survey...
