Raids by wolves spark 'emergency' in Sakha

3 posts in this topic

An influx of wolves preying on reindeer herds has triggered a state of emergency in the Sakha Republic, in north-eastern Russia.

Squads of hunters will pursue the wolves in a three-month "battle" from 15 January, officials say.

The most successful hunters will get bonuses. The vast, sparsely populated region is also known as Yakutia.

Experts quoted by Russian media believe a shortage of mountain hares has caused the migration of hungry wolves.

Incentives, always a good way to excuse any behaviour you may not wish to have. How can they resist? Pros and cons, me or the wolf... :no:

To bad, that is a tough choice. Reindeer are a natural prey for wolves, but farmers depend on their herds to feed their families. Really sad, I fear in the end we shall lose most predators in the wild.
