Abstract


Bush meat constitutes one of the available animal proteins source for many rural people. Pressure on big species is growing because of urban request consumption. Small mammals become topical resource interested for hunting to support family and for sale. This study proposes to estimate hunt fullness on sengis Petrodromus tetradactylus tordayi, one case among other small mammals appreciated at Yoko. We have initiated a follow-up of capture beside villagers during eighteen months.278 specimens come from 107 trap makers divided up 73 young men, 30 adult and 4 old people. The young man input is majority and estimated about 68%. Prospecting habit, seasonality capture has been examined also.

Abstract: (french)


La viande de brousse constitue la source protéinique la plus disponible et accessible du point de vue coût pour les ruraux. La tendance étant à la baisse pour le grand gibier qui se raréfie localement, le petit gibier est actuellement ciblé, non seulement pour la subsistance mais aussi pour la vente. Pour mesurer l’ampleur de la chasse sur Petrodromus tetradactylus tordayi (un cas parmi d'autres petits mammifères prisés), nous avons initié un suivi de capture auprès des villageois pendant 18 mois. Les 278 spécimens recensés proviennent de 107 piégeurs catégorisés en 73 jeunes gens, 30 adultes et 4 personnes âgées. L’apport des jeunes gens majoritaires a été estimé à 68%. Les habitats prospectés ainsi que les périodes saisonnières ont étés bel et bien examinés.
