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.
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.
