Rise in wolf attacks alarms sheep farmers

Still Waters

Dutch sheep farmers are worried that a sharp rise in wolf attacks may force them to install expensive electric fencing to protect their flocks.

In the first half of this year wolves killed 138 sheep in the Netherlands, but the total for 2017 was less than 20, a wolf expert told the BBC.

It is a new problem for the Dutch - March 2015 was the first time for 150 years that a wolf had been confirmed roaming in the Netherlands.

Wolves usually prey on deer and wild boar, but the increasing attacks on sheep are worrying farmers elsewhere in the EU too.
