Israel offering farmers $580 for every wolf they kill

Post by Koa » Thu Mar 15, 2018 5:38 pm

The Agriculture and Rural Development Ministry is offering a reward for every wolf that cattle and sheep farmers kill in an effort to stop wolves from preying on farmers’ calves and sheep.

The program, which provides 2,000 shekels ($580) for hunting down a mature wolf and 500 shekels per cub, is being carried out in coordination with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority and with the authority’s consent.

Although an estimated 100-150 wolves reside in Israel, wolves have become increasingly problematic in recent months.
