Abalimi bemfuyo baphelelwa ukulahlekelwa esifundeni seR2 billion ngonyaka ngenxa yezilwane ezidliwayo, njengejackal emnyama, i-caracal, ingwe, i-cheetah, i-hyena ebomvu kanye nezinkukhu kanye nezinja eziphahlazekayo.

Lapho zonke izilwane ezidliwayo zihlukaniswa ngokuthi 'izinkinga' esikhathini esidlule, izindlela ezintsha zokucabanga ziye zaholela ekuqapheliseni ukuthi akusilo isilwane kodwa esikhathini esidlule okufanele siphathwe ukunciphisa ukulahlekelwa. Njengalokhu, kube khona ukuguquka ekubulaweni okungekho okukhethiwe kukhombisa ukuphathwa okudidiyelwe lapho kuhlangene khona ukungenelela okusetshenziselwa ukuvimbela nokunciphisa ukulahlekelwa.

Ukushintshwa kusekelwa ucwaningo lwesayensi oluthole ukuthi ukungakhethi ukubulawa kwe-jackal kanye ne-caracal ukuze kungabi nakancane ukubhekana nezikhathi ezithile futhi kwezinye izimo ngisho nokwandisa inkinga ngokushintsha ubukhulu emphakathini wezilwane ezidliwayo. Izicupho kanye nobuthi zingalimaza nezilwane ezingekho umthwalo wemonakalo futhi zibe nomthelela omubi emvelweni.
