It is reported that wild wolves are increasing in Germany

Nippon Wolf has already become extinct and wild wolves from Japan disappear. In contrast, wild wolves still live in Europe, but they are still in danger of extinction. Since the 15th century, it has been reported that the wolf, which continues to reduce the population and is at risk of extinction, increased the number in Germany.

In Western Europe and Central Europe, wild wolves were driven out by humans and disappeared in the 19th century. However, as wild wolves that are threatened with extinction are subjects of protection, there are countries that are now illegal to kill, and Germany is one of them.

The German Federal Health Organization (BfN) and the Wolf Protection Federation (DBBW) announced that a group of 60 wolves were confirmed throughout Germany in 2017. This has increased by 13 compared to 2016, and it is estimated that 150 to 160 wolves are inhabited throughout Germany.

In Germany, wild wolves were disinfected and disappeared by the end of the 19th century. However, since 2000, wild wolves have moved to Germany from the neighboring Poland, wild wolves are confirmed in the Brandenburg and Saxon states in eastern Germany. However, the wolf is confirmed only in the eastern part of Germany, and it seems that the habitat does not expand to the west than it is.

In Germany, farmers are afraid of being hit by livestock, but farmers are asking for permission to shoot wolves with guns, but from the viewpoint of preventing a decrease in the number of wolves in Europe, killing wolves in Germany without permission is prohibited It is. However, in the Luzatia region along the border between Germany and Poland, activists have protested, and there seems to be a conflict of opinion over the handling of wolves.

An animal protection group says, "Because wolves attack sheep, it can not be said to be dangerous to humans automatically, it is possible to protect livestock by electric fences and watchdogs." In addition, farmers whose livestock are attacked by wolves are also equipped with a system that can receive compensation. Representing Bessen Jessel of BfN said, "Since the wolf came back to Germany, no damage to human beings has been reported," he said of the wolf's appreciation for protection.

Although it is a wolf that has recovered a small number of individuals in Germany, it seems that there is a reality that not only guns and crows but road traffic circumstances are also at great risk from humans.
