Swiss wolf puppies: Small, fluffy, playful

The young wolves live peacefully on the edge of a forest near Bellinzona in southeast Switzerland. It is the third litter from a wolf pair whose offspring now live as far as the neighboring canton of Graubünden and Italy, according to the Ticino office for hunting and fishing. The office and a research organization, KORA, monitor the pack. They say some 35 wolves live in Switzerland. Although wolves are a protected rare species, their presence causes controversy. Farmers complain the animals should be hunted as soon as possible as the predators kill their livestock, mainly targeting sheep.
