Mongoose on the Island of Mljet     pdf     HR     EN 693
Summary: At the beginning of the 20th century the Ministry of Agriculture in Vienna passed a resolution to introduce mongooses onto the island of Mljet with the aim of removing excessive venomous snake population which represented a constant threat to human health and cattle. According to the text of the “announcement” of the then County Authorities in Dubrovnik prescribing the protection of the newly-introduced predator, the introduction was made on 25 August 1910 in the area of the present National Park Mljet. Seven male and four female animals, belonging to the species of the Indian grey mongoose (Herpestes javanicus auropunctatus), were chosen as the best eradicator of venomous snakes from the family Cibetki. Having adapted well and proliferating without any obstacles, over the next twenty years the mongoose almost completely exterminated the viper population. Since then a wide variety of small animals, resident and migratory bird species, as well as poultry in human settlements, have fallen prey to it. Its excessive numbers had disturbed the relations among other wild animal species to such an extent that its legal protection was abolished in 1949. So far the attempts to decrease the mongoose population to an acceptable number has not given any positive results.
Key words: introduction; the Indian grey mongoose (Herpestes javanicus auropunctatus); the island of Mljet
