The three important predator species in South West Africa, lion Panthera leo, leopard Panthera pardus, and cheetahAcinonyx jubatus, are fully protected in the Etosha National Park and other proclaimed game reserves of the S.W.A. Administration , but are regarded as vermin in the rest of South West Africa and the three Northern Bantu territories. Because of the high economic loss to livestock caused by these predators they are not tolerated on farms and are destroyed by being shot dead, trapped in gintraps or poisoned with chemicals such as strychnine hydrochloride.
