(France) Wolves to be 'educated' not to kill sheep
Wolves to be 'educated' not to kill sheep
In a bid to try and crackdown on the number of wolf attacks on farm animals the French government has announced a plan to try and "educate" the wild beasts. The proposal has been greeted with mixed reactions.
Can you teach a wolf not to eat sheep?
The idea is being floated in France, where the return of the wolf has got farmers and environmentalists at each other's throats.
Under a proposed "National Wolf Plan," the government says it will conduct experiments into "educating" the canine carnivore, which is spreading stealthily in remote areas.
Rest assured, this scheme does not entail lecturing wolves about the cuteness of lambs or trying to convert them to vegetarianism.
I have met some of those people in both France and the US who started the wolf programs. Glad to see they've caught up with Idaho, Wyoming and Montana except I think they are handling working through the impasse better, more intellectually and they'll probably have more realistic and acceptable results.
