Gazelles Fall Victim to Stray Dogs in Israel's North

Parks authority says public pressure has reduced its ability to protect endangered species by thinning rampant populations of scavengers.

Eight dead gazelles, which had probably been pursued and bitten by a pack of stray dogs, were found in the Upper Galilee on Sunday by Israel Nature and Parks Authority inspectors. It is presumed that the snow in the area had made movement difficult for the gazelles and enabled the dogs to get close to them.
