WAV Comment – Hunters killing pregnant wolves ? – no, it cant be true; hunters always preach to us that they are the conservationists.
And ‘the pregnant she wolf had killed sheep’. Sad but true; that’s what happens in the wild; especially when pregnant animals need to build up their supplies so that they can provide milk to youngsters when they are born.
The reality here is that a farmer has had a few of his sheep killed by a natural process which involves wild animals looking for food. Thus he cannot sell his sheep and get them loaded onto transporter trucks that go here, there and everywhere whilst evading all the regulations that have been set by the EU to ‘protect the welfare of animals in transport’.
It is great to read that the wolves are going to get more protection; but will it be enough to protect the from the bloodlust psychos who have to shoot everything in sight under the name of ‘conservation’ ?
Hopefully the wolves will live long lives; and the rest ? – I guess farmers want the perfect life of selling each and every one of their animals for terrible slaughter; but hey, who cares ?; as long as they get their cash; and the wolves should just not eat meat; simple as that. Possibly all wolves should now be trained on an orange juice and nut only diet.
Wildlife conservation: First wild baby wolves for Belgium in 150 years
4 May 2020
Wildlife experts in Belgium are getting excited to welcome the country’s first set of wild wolf cubs in more than 100 years.
Adult wolves were spotted in 2018 in the European country for the first time in over one hundred years, and experts have been keeping a close eye on them and hoping for babies.
Now a female wolf named Noella is expected to give birth to cubs very, very soon.
To protect the wolves hunting has been banned and wildlife rangers are out on patrol, making sure the animals are safe.
Wolves disappeared from most of Western Europe because of hunting, growing cities and more factories being built.
That’s why experts in Belgium are now excited and keen to protect the few that have returned.
