The raccoon dog : an exponential problem?

The raccoon dog : an exponential problem?

Samenvatting

The raccoon dog was introduced in Russia and has been moving west ever since. Currently there are populations in: Finland, Poland, Germany and the Baltic countries. There are sightings in Norway, Denmark and Sweden. There is a high possibility that the raccoon dog will settle in the Netherlands. Raccoon dogs pose a threat to breeding bird populations and amphibian populations and are vector species for diseases like rabies, the worms: trichinella spp and Echinoccus multilocularis (red fox tape worm) and a mite sarcoptes scabiei who cause mange. Therefore the Team Invasive Species (TIE) of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs requested an overview of the management methods in Europe used to control the population of raccoon dogs.The main research questions in this report are: which management methods are used to control the population in Europe? And when looking at public opinion, effect and cost efficiency which method would be most suitable to be applied in the Netherlands? To answer these research questions literature research, interview with experts and a population model was used.
