A bad Christmas and media fairytale…

 

 

Germany

 

The alleged wolf attack in Lower Saxony on a Tuesday, the 29th of November had caused a stir. A wolf is said to have snatched at the hands of a 55-year-old community worker who worked at the fence of a green area, as the police reported. According to the man, another three wolves of a pack would have observed this!!

On Tuesday morning, the 55-year-old repaired the fence at the cemetery in Bülstedter district Steinfeld (Lower Saxony) . The small cemetery is a few hundred meters away from the nearest houses on the edge of the forest, the employee of the municipality administration works alone.
As he turns back to grab a tool, an animal snaps!! It bites the arm, tugs at the sweater.
The police say the day after: a wolf!!

The media is popping the news in the whole of Germany, the stupid reader must fear for his life, so: wolves must be shot, as the CDU wants it for a long time.
And the mayor Frank Holle (Christian Democratic Union, CDU) confirmed on demand that the man’s statements it is believable: “He knows about animals and can distinguish dogs from wolves. The man does not provoke the animal. There are currently wolves everywhere!!” While the worker spoke only of animals, the mayor Holle (Christian Democratic Union) made wolves out of it.

Three animals are watching!!

What also speaks against dogs: The alleged “wolf” is not alone. A few meters away, the man sees three more animals, in total there are three white and one black!!

Polar Wolfg(Remark: In Germany only gray wolves live in freedom, no white, as here in the photo a polar wolf.Black wolves also not.)

 

With a hammer, the church employee strikes after the animal, it gets hurt, it runs away with the others. Only on the day after the man goes on the advice of his superiors to the doctor. Immediately the competent authorities are informed, the torn sweater checked for traces. The man also tries to secure DNA material.

No trace of the wolf: only deer cat and dog hair were found!

The fairy tale, however, has a nice happy end: the same press, witch has spread the panic by lying and false information to the public, now writes: “a week after this alleged wolf bite in Lower Saxony, a DNA examination has not confirmed that it is such a predator acted. The seven samples of animal hair, the jumper of the attacked and a hammer, with which the alleged wolf was repelled, are not attributable to a wolf, said a spokeswoman for the Lower Saxony Ministry of the Environment on Tuesday in Hanover.

On the hammer experts found deer hair!! Further hair samples and DNA traces on clothing were from cats and a dog. There would have been no evidence of a wolf, said the Lower Saxony Ministry of Environment”.

My comment:

When I read the first message, my first thought was: If hunters confuse people with wild pigs and shoot them (which happens very often), why should not a community worker mistake a wolf for a dog?

Why is the press not waiting for the results of the genetic analysis to write reputable reports?

Since the 1990s, no one has been harmed by wolves.  The press should have been informed about the nature and social behavior of wolves.

The anti-wolf gang needed a lot of time to decorate this story. Sharp is the fact that the incident has just been staged right now that the intention of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU ) to shoot wolves, as a plan exists.

Yes…The sensational Christmas comedy ran stupidly.
The next time, the CDU should try with the Red Riding Hood, maybe it works better.

One thought on “A bad Christmas and media fairytale…”

  1. I have been writing about this type of stories few times. I guess, the poor worker had a few booze and saw a poor deer coming next to him (there are many wild animals attracted in search of food) which it got bumped with the hammer. As far as I know, wolves are shy animals and always runn away in presence of humans… unless there is a great danger and a female in a pack must protect her cubs.
    I think frustrating to read articles or see pictures (even in blogs) trying to demonstrate that wolves attack humans without any reason… Stupidity and ignorance is always well spread… Serenity :-)claudine
