BIG GAME HUNTERS

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


BIG GAME HUNTERS


Dogs have been used as hunting aids from earliest times.All over the world dogs were trained to find, flush, pursue or attack different prey. For example, the Patagonians hunted with the help of horses and dogs. The dogs were trained to seize the prey. In India a number of breeds such as Alangu Mastiff, Caravan Hound, Rampur Hound were extensively used by the nobility in the Mughal period to track down big games.
Gran Chako dogs, which lived on offal and scraps and inhabited the dens which they scrapped in the ground, were used in hunting Jaguars and peccary : they were noisy and persistent in nature which so aggravated the fleeing jaguar that it paused to deal with them, giving an opportunity to the hunters to catch up!
Eskimo dogs, apart from drawing sledges, were trained in detecting and hunting of seals. They could detect the seal's breathing holes in the ice, and also attack a bear from behind so that the hunter could easily harpoon it.
In Tierra del Fuego fox like dogs herded shoals of fish into their master's net and also stole edible birds' nest for their master.
In Samoa they trained very courageous dogs to check the progress of a fleeing pig by catching it by the ears, tail and shoulders so that the hunters could finish it off. 
The early Muslim invaders in India knew that elephants dreaded small, noisy animals, especially dogs, which they to divert a charge.
