Are chital stags more vulnerable to dhole predation than does?


, : Are chital stags more vulnerable to dhole predation than does?. Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society 89(2): 153-155

Johnsingh's 1983 study reveals that the dhole Cuon alpinus kills disproportionately more males than females of one of its prey, the sambar Cervus unicolor, but not of its other prey, the chital Axis axis. However, a reexamination of his data changed this conclusion. My analysis revealed that dholes do hunt significantly more male than female chital. What differed in my analysis was that I tested for differences between 22 month population sex ratios and 22 month kill sex ratios, whereas Johnsingh tested for differences between 5 month population and 22 month kill ratios.
