These beautiful cats roam the peninsula, we have even had one in our grounds. Very shy and no threat to humans.

These beautiful cats roam the peninsula, we have even had one in our grounds. Very shy and no threat to humans.

We first met #TMC27 #Disa 🌺 when the City asked us to assist with an acute intervention to address a caracal killing penguins at Boulders #MeetTheCats. While we don’t support relocations as a solution for conflict, we agreed to a one-off relocation as a short-term solution while longer term strategies could be developed. When we caught a caracal adjacent to Boulders beach, we were surprised to discover it was a mature female rather than the subadult male we thought most likely to predate on penguins at the colony.

Suspecting she may be supporting offspring (see photos of her kittens taken *ONE YEAR BEFORE* she was relocated), we recommended relocating her within her likely home-range, but we were instructed to relocate her to #Orangekloof, Hout Bay (after GPS-collaring her) 🌿. For 23 days she explored her new Hout Bay surroundings before settling in the Karbonkelberg area ⛰ (see map), where she stayed until her collar automatically dropped off in November 2016. At her capture we found her canine teeth were both damaged. This didn’t seem to slow her down —she successfully hunted Cape cormorants and dassies. She also regularly traversed the steep cliff faces around the Karbonkelberg peak, and we even had to source assistance from rock climbers to retrieve her collar!

Despite being released into a more urbanised area, Disa continued to behave more like a ‘rural’ southern Peninsula caracal. She avoided urban areas, preferred hunting on the coast and continued hunting mainly seabirds. 🌊🐦This reinforces what is known for other species – individuals that are moved from their territories are more likely to succeed in areas that resemble “home.”

Disa’s relocation reinforced for us why relocation is an inadequate management strategy. Disa survived her relocation, but so did the problem of caracals preying on penguins. 🐧 It turns out that Disa had a male offspring who was left abandoned in the colony and turned to the easy food source of penguins. Stay tuned for his story.

Managing predators around a land-based penguin colony is a complex problem. While the penguin colony is small (less than 1 sq.km) it includes private properties, Naval land, and open access public beaches. Therefore, to protect both penguins and caracal, our recommendation is to build strategic fencing based on access points from the mountain to the colony.
