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.
