North Rhine-Westphalia: Two new wolves detected on the Lower Rhine

Wesel (dpa / lnw) - Two other wolves have been detected in Schermbeck near Wesel by traces of feces. The two animals - a male and a female - did not descend from the Schermbecker wolf pack, which has been known since 2019, according to the State Office for Nature, Environment and Consumer Protection (Lanuv) on Tuesday. It is still unclear whether the two wolves will settle in the area and possibly form a new pack.

The previous Schermbecker wolf pack with several young animals has been causing uncertainty among sheep, goat and small horse keepers for a long time by attacking livestock. According to earlier information from the State Ministry for the Environment, there were around 40 attacks by wolves on livestock in NRW in 2021 alone, almost half of them by the wolf pack on the Lower Rhine.

Keepers of sheep, goats and game animals in the Schermbeck wolf area and in the surrounding buffer zone should "secure their animals with suitable fences in a wolf-repellent manner", advised the Lanuv. In officially recognized wolf areas such as in Schermbeck and in the buffer zones, preventive measures such as the purchase of wolf-repellent electric fences would be 100 percent funded.
