Restriction of wild animal range size

Other Names:
Forcible displacement of wildlife

Human control of grazing lands has been achieved by the forcible displacement of wild animals, especially herbivores, and their restriction to smaller ranges. The large herds of gazelle, antelope, zebras and other animals in sub-Saharan Africa have been reduced in size and displaced onto reserves. The lands so acquired are now populated by cattle, sheep, goats and humans.
