Transcript of Black-footed Cats
Black-footed cats are not migratory nor do they hibernate. They are nocturnal creatures and lie in burrows or in termite-mound ventilation shafts during the day. Problems -Black-footed cats face the problem of habitat deterioration through the loss of their grassland biomes. This is due to overgrazing by livestock.
-Farmers also set out steel-jaw traps and poisoned bait for the African wildcat, which can also harm the black-footed cat.
-The poisoning of locusts, which is a source of food of the Black-footed cat is also a problem.
-Most Black-footed cats die of kidney failure, but the reason is still not clear. Solutions -CITES lists the Black-footed cats in Appendix I and they are considered endangered by the Endangered Species Act.
