Chase of a Jackal, in the New Forest, 1850. Hunting in Hampshire: '...a Jackal, of great size and ferocity...arrived at Lyndhurst...the place where the Jackal was to be enlarged [released]...had been kept a profound secret, in consequence of the crowds...The pack at once took up the scent...Now occurred an incident not unusual in the New Forest: a herd of some twenty fallow deer crossed the railway; and so frightened were they, that they turned with with the hounds, and the pack and deer, as it were, mutually pressed on the line of the fugitive...[the jackal] then turned suddenly to the right into some strong gorse, over some heath, where he was viewed going into another piece of gorse, in which he was secured without much damage, except fatigue; and it is hoped that he may yet survive...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1850.
