The inevitable conflict occurs when farmers lose their livestock to predators. As a result, these predators are often regarded as 'vermin' by the livestock community, and removing them seems to be the only solution to the problem. The animals are often caught in box or gin traps, poisoned, or are shot on sight.
The AfriCat Foundation is on hand to assist any farmer who has caught a predator alive in a trap. To save the animal from possibly being shot, the Foundation will travel to the farm to collect the animal, and bring it back to the AfriCat Foundation.
This contact with the farmer also enables the Foundation to promote sound livestock management techniques as an effective solution to livestock losses rather than carnivore losses.
