Aardwolves cannot kill livestock, yet many are killed by fearful farmers each year.

Some farmers believe aardwolves prey on their lambs and shoot them at every opportunity. Aardwolves are also killed indirectly through insecticide spraying.

More aardwolves are probably killed indiscriminately by packs of dogs used to hunt jackals and foxes.
