|Title:||Dietary Study of Free-Ranging Dogs in Rural Zimbabwe||Contributor(s):||Butler, James R A (author); Brown, Wendy (author)||Publication Date:||2016||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/19367||Abstract:||Food intakes and feeding behaviors were quantified in 16 radio-collared, free-ranging dogs. Anthropogenic resources accounted for 87.5% of the diet, mostly independently scavenged. The most frequently eaten item was sadza (maize-meal porridge) followed by human feces. Human feces was more consistently available than carrion and of higher protein content than sadza.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Canine Science Forum 2016, Padua, Italy, 28th June - 1st July, 2016||Conference Details:||Canine Science Forum 2016, Padua, Italy, 28th June - 1st July, 2016||Source of Publication:||5th Canine Science Forum Proceedings, p. 132-132||Publisher:||Padova University Press||Place of Publication:||Padua, Italy||Field of Research (FOR):||070203 Animal Management||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.csf2016.com||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 334
