Why are dholes endangered?
In areas of Cambodia, a key dhole stronghold, snares litter the ground.
These death traps pepper the forest floor, and – as the dholes energetically bound along – there is very little they can do to avoid them.
Once trapped, there’s almost no escape.
All they can do – despite every desperate effort from them and their packmates – is wait until they fatally succumb to the injury.
It’s a grim fate. And if we don’t act now, it’s a fate that could await far too many dholes.
