People from the jungles of Asia will follow hunting dholes and steal their captured prey as a food source.

Dholes have become an indirect food source for the residents of the jungles in Asia.

Dholes do not attack human beings and usually retreat at the sight of a person. They are super-sensitive skittish, docile, animals. Taking advantage of this fact, human residents of the jungle follow dholes when they are hunting in order to steal their kills. After a dhole has taken down its prey, humans will scare it away and steal the carcass.
