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.

Eradication and control of feral dogs in Galápagos

Barnett, B. D. (1986). Eradication and control of feral and free-ranging dogs in the Galápagos Islands. In Proceedings of the Twelfth Vertebrate Pest Conference (1986) (8 pp.).

The history of canid introduction in Galápagos, their impact on biodiversity and the control and eradication by different methods, mainly poisoning with 1080 and chemical sterilisation.
After eradication in some areas, some mesopredator release effect was detected and cats further threatened iguanas populations. Sea lions became free of this danger, but cattle invaded areas previously occupied by dogs.
