This ordinance had provisions to (1) specify and protect certain birds and animals, (2) stipulate times and seasons within which it was prohibited to kill, pursue, or shoot game without a license, and (3) classify some animals as royal game and restrict people from hunting or capturing them, for example, elephant (Loxodonta africana), giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis), white rhino (Ceratotherium simum), kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros
), and ostrich (Struthio camelus) [7, 68].

This occurs mostly on private land, with the most commonly hunted species being impala (Aepyceros melampus), warthog (Phacochoerus aethiopicus), and kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros
), which all share habitat with the SGH.
Genetics of Tragelaphus strepsiceros
vary widely and affect horn growth dramatically.
New reports have suggested greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros
) and common warthog (Phacochoerus africanus) as potential wildlife reservoirs of bovine tuberculosis (4).
