Jeeser (dpa / mv) - A driver collided with a wolf between Greifswald and Stralsund. As a police spokesman said on Monday, the accident happened on Sunday in the dark on a district road near Jeeser (West Pomerania-Rügen). The predator was so badly injured that the police had to shoot it. The 55-year-old driver from the neighboring district of Vorpommern-Greifswald was unharmed.
There was only minor material damage to the small car at Jeeser. According to the Schwerin Ministry of the Environment, a wolf pack settled in the Greifswald region for the first time in the 2021/2022 monitoring period. A total of 16 wolf packs with their cubs, two pairs of wolves and several individual predators currently live in the northeast, with animals from Brandenburg and Poland regularly immigrating.
