Wespi, B; Clauss, Marcus; Deb, A; Arif, A; Taha, A; Hammer, C; Hammer, S (2009). Comparison of an unmanaged population of Pelzeln's gazelle. (Gazella dorcas pelzelni) to an intensively managed population at Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation (AWWP), Qatar. In: Wibbelt, G; Kretzschmar, P; Hofer, H. Proceedings of the International Conference on Diseases of Zoo and Wild Animals. Berlin: Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, 340-344.

Abstract

At AWWP a managed and an unmanaged group of Pelzeln’s gazelle is kept. In a retrospective study (2003 - 2007), 274 post mortem reports and stock list records were analysed in terms of differences between these 2 groups. There was only a slight difference in overall mortality, whereas the causes of death differed. From this point of view, less intensive management could also be a possibility to keep gazelles in captivity.
