Meerkats charm masks brutal killers

In an unrelated report ( see Talkback post below), originating from The Telegraph in London, it appears those loveable stars of natural history films aren't as cute and cuddly as they appear to be. Apparently they have major problems with jealousy, infanticide and cannibalism. And it gets worse. Herald A9. Shocking stuff.

I have a friend who is a trainee zookeeper in Auckland and apparently the Meerkats are one of the most vicious animals there, very territorial. If they don't like you they'll latch on to an ankle and savage it.

The Chinese government has employed a band of meerkats to snuff out any excess babies.
