The animal was immortalized by a camera trap placed as part of the lynx monitoring carried out by the Kora foundation and the canton. “Its appearance is a first in the Jura massif,” said Laurence Jobin, spokesperson for the Department of the Environment, on Monday, returning to information from 24 Hours.

Another specimen was spotted last June in the canton, in the region of Morcles. “This is a natural and gradual return of the species from Eastern Europe,” said Frédéric Hoffmann, head of the hunting, fishing and surveillance section at the Directorate General for the Environment.

The golden jackal is not the only one to have had his portrait taken on this same site in the Vaudois Jura: in addition to images of lynxes, this campaign provides many snapshots of local wildlife, explains the Kora on Monday in a publication. We find the fox on the vast majority of the images. He is followed from afar by the wolf who has been more regularly photographed since the installation of the first pack in the region in 2019.

Completely harmless, the golden jackal resembles a medium-sized dog with bushy fur. It has been recorded in Switzerland since 2011. Native to south-eastern Europe, it is currently experiencing a meteoric expansion to the north and west. In French-speaking Switzerland, several specimens have been observed, including two in Friborg last June and one in Geneva just a year ago.
