Les hommes ont oublié cette vérité. Mais tu ne dois pas l'oublier, dit le renard. Tu deviens responsable pour toujours de ce que tu as apprivoisé.

Dog predation on kiwis

Taborsky, M. (1988). Kiwis and dog predation: observations in Waitangi State Forest. Notornis, 35(3), 197-202.

A wild dog was found to kill 13 out of 23 kiwis marked with transmitters. 
The whole population may have lost 500 out of 900 birds, although this estimate may be conservative. The population will probably need 10-20 years and a rigorous protection scheme to recover to previous densities
