Hunting Phenomenon

An auto-thermoregulatory response by a person with hypothermia in which a cold extremity is conserved in the face of prolonged exposure to temperatures < 15ºC, blood flow increased intermittently to the extremities; if the hypothermia persists, the limb loses its blood flow entirely in order to maintain core temperature

"Lebanon is struggling to control the hunting phenomenon. They have lots of challenges at the present -- such as from migrants from Syria -- and their resources are stretched, and therefore conservation tends to be bottom of the list." Hunting practices can include the illegal trapping of falcons, with poachers then selling them on.
Hunting phenomenon mentioned before always exists in the railway vehicle running process because the lateral and yaw motions of the vehicle are coupled.
Railway transportation system safety requires that derailment or the wheel flange climb during rail vehicle running is never be allowed while ride comfort requires that a self excited lateral railway oscillation or what called hunting phenomenon is eliminated.
Another hunting phenomenon is the incredible proliferation of the wild turkey.
