NO WOLF SPOTTED YET, BUT BRABANT IS READY!! tinyurl.com/ycaqhafy
DEN BOSCH - The first wolf has yet to report to Brabant soil, but the province is taking it for granted and is therefore working on a 'Wolves plan'. That is what environmental commissioner Johan van den Hout writes to the Provincial Council.
In October one or more wolves struck their battle in Orvelte and Dalerpeel in Drenthe and earlier this year the predators also appeared in the vicinity of Wageningen and in the Betuwe. "The establishment of a wolf or a pair of wolves is no longer inconceivable" ", the Brabant provincial executive observes. ,, And that is the reason for further elaboration of the question how to deal with it. ''Van den Hout says that a difference must be made between 'roaming and established wolves'. "Roaming wolves do not have a fixed hunting area, can cover large distances and pop up in unpredictable places. There they can surprise cattle unprotected, like sheep. Established wolves have a territory in which they live. In that case, precautionary measures can be taken so that non-farm animals are the bones, but wild as roe deer, hares and young wild boars. "The wolf plan shows how the advancing wolf can be tackled without compromising its protected status. Work is also being done to make his presence socially acceptable. Therefore, it is assumed that damage caused by wolves is reimbursed.
The question is when Brabant can welcome its first wolf. ,, That is difficult to predict '', writes Van den Hout. "But it does not seem plausible that a first branch will occur in Brabant." ... See MoreSee Less
