Mammals of Cameroon

African wild dog and cheetah all but extinct in North Cameroon The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) and the cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) are “functionally extirpated” in North Cameroon. “Other large carnivores such as lion, leopard, striped hyena and spotted hyena, have become rare and survive in small populations. The main reasons for the population crash of both wild dog and cheetah are habitat destruction, poaching by local communities, loss of prey and retaliatory killing by managers of hunting zones.
