Problem With Wolves in Finland: More Than 9 Incidents in 2 Weeks

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

*Editor’s Note* – Below is part of an email I received today about dealing with wolves in Finland. Note that it states these incidents, and evidently there are more, happened during a 2-week period of time in February (2014).

To make the effort by readers easier, I have left the original link as was sent but I took the time to include the link to a translated version of the story. Please bear in mind that the Google translation is not a perfect translation but it should be good enough that readers can understand what is taking place. You can read the translated stories by clicking on the “Translation” link after each original link.

This is what we have here. And this all has happened in only February in less than two weeks time!
