The gettle is a wild animal on Cardassia that lives in packs.
The Colaxa Plain is the last location of wild gettle on the entire planet, although they are often targets of poachers. (ST reference: Federation Travel Guide)
In 2369, Madred compared the children who slept together for warmth on Cardassia's streets as being like wild gettle. (TNG episode: "Chain of Command, Part II")
