Jackals are medium-sized omnivorous mammals of the genus Canis, which also includes wolves, coyotes and the domestic dog. While the word “jackal” has historically been used for many small canids, in modern use it most commonly refers to three species: the closely related black-backed jackal and side-striped jackal of sub-Saharan Africa, and the golden jackal of south-central Eurasia, which is more closely related to other members of the genus Canis.
Experiments in Germany with breeding poodles and golden jackals have produced hybrids. The results showed that, unlike wolf–dog hybrids, jackal–dog hybrids show a decrease in fertility, significant communication problems, and an increase of genetic disorders after three generations of interbreeding, much like coydogs. In Russia, golden jackals are one of the founder breeds of the Sulimov dog, a working dog owned exclusively by Aeroflot and used for bomb detection in airport security.
A vulture is a scavenging bird of prey. The two types of vultures are the New World vultures, including the Californian and Andean condors, and the Old World vultures, including the birds that are seen scavenging on carcasses of dead animals on African plains. Some traditional Old World vultures (including the bearded vulture) are not closely related to the others, which is why the vultures are to be subdivided into three taxa rather than two. New World vultures are found in North and South America; Old World vultures are found in Europe, Africa, and Asia, meaning that between the two groups, vultures are found on every continent except Australia and Antarctica.
Vultures rarely attack healthy animals, but may kill the wounded or sick. When a carcass has too thick a hide for its beak to open, it waits for a larger scavenger to eat first. Vast numbers have been seen upon battlefields. They gorge themselves when prey is abundant, until their crops bulge, and sit, sleepy or half torpid, to digest their food. These birds do not carry food to their young in their talons but disgorge it from their crops.
In a recording we recorded the battle between vultures and jackal. In order to protect his food, the brave jackal fights against a crowded vulture.

According to photographer Barnard shared, when found out that the monster hunting monkeys prey on it hunting, the vulture immediately “call society”, attack dog council jungle. Facing the hemorrhage of bloodthirsty vultures, the jackals do not falter. It seems this is not the first time it has encountered these opportunistic birds.
However, despite the attempt to fight, the winter east but because of the overwhelming numbers, the dog finally gave up, leaving in warmth, to wear vulture to rob the number of leftovers myself.
After successful bait, the vultures rush to tear the food. They stomped on each other to tear each piece of meat, completely out of order.
In fact, the predators of the jackals are probably not the big cats, but the vultures, the scavengers, and the opportunity. Because little jackals do not have the strength to attack as lions, so often the object of stalking birds with wingspan to meter.
Usually, if alone, the jackal will succumb despite the possibility of injuring a few members of the vulture.
