Falcon and Cheetah: Man's hunting companions


, : Falcon and Cheetah: Man's hunting companions. Vierteljahrsschrift der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Zuerich 140(2): 61-68

For centuries man has used certain animals and birds to hunt prey where technical means of hunting were lacking. Countless sources testify to the intensive relationship which built up between man and beast beyond the initial need. In this article the history of hunting with the aid of cheetahs and falcons will be studied. Both traditions have been deeply influenced by the development of modern arms. The decrease in the cheetah population has led to the disappearance of this method of hunting. Falconry, however, fortunately has a good chance of survival in Europe due to great efforts of falconers in the protection of birds of prey and their environment.
