The truth is they were here before us.
Jackals are an integral part of the open space landscape in Israel, but urbanization and development processes have pushed jackal populations to the outskirts of cities.
In recent years the jackals have returned to the Yarkon and sometimes they multiply here excessively.
The main reason for this is - we. We provide them, usually unintentionally, with plenty of food in the trash. What do the authorities do?
The most effective way to prevent jackals from overcrowding is to reduce their food sources. To this end, the authorities in the Yarkon area are taking, among other things, the following actions:
- Installing lids on trash cans that prevent access to food scraps.
- High frequency garbage removal.
- Scattering baits containing rabies vaccine (municipal authorities and the Nature and Parks Authority) What will you do when you meet a jackal?
Stay calm. Jackals do not usually attack humans. Just ignore them. What is the public asked to do?
- Do not leave waste and food scraps out of the trash.
- Do not feed jackals and do not leave them food. Feeding jackals is detrimental to their health and condition in the wild.
