For the first time, golden jackals have been detected in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein, which borders Denmark, authorities announced this week. The animals are originally native to the Balkans, but have slowly spread to areas they never previously settled, such as northern Italy, eastern Austria and Hungary...[snip]

 

The predators are smaller and more slender than gray wolves and normally weigh 8 to 10 kilograms (17 to 22 pounds), while especially large specimens can reach 15 kilograms, according to the ministry. They are protected by German federal regulations...[snip]

 

Despite the name, golden jackals are believed to be more closely related to gray wolves and coyotes than to the black-backed and side-striped jackal species native to Africa...[snip]

 

Kim has been saying for decades, that many of these "wolf" named canines in Europe are more closely related to Coyotes and Jackals, than to their more distant relative, the true Wolf.   

 


They tend to feed on insects, rodents, birds and amphibians but can also eat smaller mammals such as hares and rabbits, rare deer, and their offspring.

 

I hope they mean the deer offspring.

From Kim:

 

 

I wish the “old (good old boys) scientists” would stop calling these “ancestors of our dogs; wolves” … they are not wolves, just as Red “wolves” & Gray “wolves” are actually more “jackal / coyote “ than wolf.

 

These more jackal / coyote’s” are the more survivable / sustainable canines that became our modern dog than  the older dinosaur type ancestor; the wolf.

 

This is a very good example of more logical modern  study, research, that my ancestors & more modern open minded researchers (past & present) have known all along … & are now finding more proof of.

 

As the more “survivable” coyote / jackals, just keep on “surviving the poisoning & prejudices of modern man … & the larger less adaptable wolves continue to go extinct . Not able to adjust to our modern world, as have our dogs ancestors that have literally become our companion dogs.

More from Kim:

 

 

WOW! – Now that is a great article … shows how the more adaptable survivable canines are making a comeback … both in their primitive form & through our dogs & have become our symbiotic partners, booth in the wild & within our homes -
