Economy and jackalsby Crispus NGO Sibiu, Romania, Ecology Department
On 7th of September 2019 in "Dimitrie Gusti" National Village Museum in Bucharest near sheep or cattle and lamb furs, golden jackal skin was on sail with 800 RON (150-160 Eur). And apparently all the process is legal. Even if species is NT for EU 27 and management can be done only based on specific seasonal monitoring, the vendor told us that the intestines are send to Cluj-Napoca for analysis of endo-parasites, the penian bone to "Gr Antipa" NHM. So, the fur cost was surprisingly high and it seems that the business is legal, if jackals are culled for scientific purpose.
