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.

Removal of feral dogs by befriending them

Morley, C. G. (2006). Removal of feral dogs Canis familiaris by befriending them, Viwa Island, Fiji. Conservation Evidence, 3(3).

On a Fijian island a decision was made to remove feral dogs Canis familiaris as they were predating
upon endangered fauna. Rather than trapping or shooting, by offering food and gradually habituating
them to people, almost all were captured unharmed and moved to the main island of Fiji.
