SE: Five sheep attacked by wolves in Småland

Roughly translated by TWIN Observer


At least five sheep have been killed in a suspected wolf attack in Häradsbäck in southern Småland. The county police inspector came to the sheep shelter after an alarm from the sheep owner about a dead ewe, apparently without bite damage.

“The wolf had simply stressed her death,” says inspector Rune Håkansson to Smålänningen.

Then four other dead ewes were found with bite marks in the throat and back part. A further three may be missing in the flock but have not been found. Rune Håkansson is convinced that there is a wolf attacking the sheep after a summer without other known animal wreckage in domestic animals in Kronoberg County.

The latest quality assured wolf observation in southern Småland was made in April, but according to the newspaper, a wolf-like animal was recently photographed on a road near the sheep shelter.
