Advice for Germans on coexisting with wolves

…The wolf’s return to Germany a century after being hunted to extinction “is a great success for us conservationists”, says Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks. “But it is also a great challenge because in many places man and wolf have to learn again how to coexist.” On Wednesday, a local parliament committee in Lower Saxony debated the issue of what to do if you are approached by a wolf, in response to residents’ concerns about the animals’ presence in the area. Despite demands from some farmers, shooting the animals is not an option because the wolf is still an endangered species in Germany.
