The males of this species, called Bulls, are very aggressive and actively defend their herd and territory. These animals also play a vital role in the ecosystem by fertilizing the ground with their urine and feces and acting as food for many large carnivores.
Despite all that, local farmers see them as a pest as they reduce the grass available for cattle and can also spread various pathogens to livestock.
A substantial portion of their population is inside the protected areas, and they are not at risk now. Potential threats to their long-term survival include unsustainable agricultural expansion, depletion of water resources, and poaching.
