Golden jackal, first time in Drenthe province

This July 2019 video from Israel is about a golden jackal, a red fox, Egyptian vultures and other birds.

Golden jackals are traditionally an Asian and east European species.

However, they are expanding to the west. They have been spotted in Germany and Denmark.

Dutch daily De Volkskrant reports today that for the first time ever, a golden jackal was seen on a camera trap in Drenthe province.

The species had been seen twice before in the Netherlands, in Gelderland province.
