Publication History

Published Online:

Two adult male dholes Cuon alpinus belonging to 2 different packs were radio collared and tracked between March 2000 and October 2002 in Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand. Dholes occupied cumulative ranges (95% minimum convex polygon) of 12.0 km2 (n = 39) and 49.5 km2 (n = 62), traveled an average of 2,214 m each day (n = 27, ± 2,422 m, range 25-9,469), and were primarily active during diurnal and crepuscular periods (n = 927 activity readings, 46% active). Dhole diet using scat analysis (n = 172) and identification of carcasses (n = 14) consisted only of ungulates. Dhole range primarily included forested habitat, although some individuals also were observed hunting in grasslands.

Key Words: Cuon alpinus,; dhole,; diet,; ecology,; radio-telemetry,; Thailand.
