Golden jackal about to swallow the head of a bird, possibly a hen.

Golden jackals are native to the Middle East and Southern Asia. With most of those areas covered, the jackals have continued to expand their population into Europe over the last 20 years, now outnumbering the native wolf population 10 to 1.

The jackals have been spotted in almost every European country, filling the void once held by the declining wolf population as jackals tend to avoid areas frequented by their larger relatives.

It’s a fascinating example of adaptation, and although I’ve only just learned of this expansion, I will be checking back periodically to see what happens.
