"Wolves at large in Madrid mountains"

Post by Koa » Fri Jan 14, 2011 6:32 pm

MADRID - MANY currently struggle to keep the figurative wolf from the door but in the Guadarrama mountains (Madrid), cattle farmers are striving to keep Iberian wolves from their herds and flocks. Videos and sound recordings had been sent to the regional president, Esperanza Aguirre, to prove that wolves were in the area and attacked livestock, said a representative from the Farming, Stockbreeding and Forestry Union (UGEMA).

The Madrid regional government’s environment department conceded that wolves were around but insisted that they did not inhabit the area but crossed the boundaries separating Madrid from Avila and Segovia.
Good, but short read. It will be interesting to see how they end up handling the situation.

Interesting article, it is short isn't it. I am sure the farmers would find someway of holding the Wolves at bay, but I don't think it is going to go down that well.

Yeah, I do agree in that, Most likely, they will perform judgement on their own. Which means usually killing of wolves. :?

I am actually hoping the wolves are able to drive the people out before they resort to weapons, they deserve those mountains more than we do.
Staring into my eyes, they can't comprehend what it is that they see, is it a being, or is it just an illusion, they wonder if they even really exist, or if they are just figments of my dream...

I agree, weapons are usually used for the bad stuff, and I hope that the humans won't get violent, it's true, wolves do deserve that mountains better.
