Wolf spotted in the Jeseníky mountains

Post by Sambhur » Sun Feb 07, 2016 12:21 am

A wolf was videotaped in the Jeseníky mountains in north Moravia at the beginning of the year and its footprints were found as well. It is the first evidence of wolves in the area in a decade, according to conservation group Hnutí Duha.

Conservationists are pleased with the sighting.

“Demonstrating the presence of a wolf in Jeseníky is good news for our foresters. So far there are only sporadic sightings that may indicate a lone migratory wolf, but if the wolves managed to colonize the territory permanently, it would be very good for the entire ecosystem. As demonstrated by scientific evidence, large carnivores have a positive effect on the balance of the natural environment. Deer in the woods change their behavior, improve their health and fitness, and reduce damage to forests,” said Tomáš Pospíšil from the Šumperk regional office of forestry firm Lesy České republiky.

That's really interesting! Thanks for posting this Sambhur.
I ran out of snarky remarks, unfortunately.
