OT: Counsels on living with wolves
We have a rapidly expanding wolf population and now have, almost literally, the wolf at the door. They ate three of the goats our next door neighbors have running around free. The goats have always stuck quite close to the buildings, so the wolves must have gotten close as well. Then a couple of mornings ago DH was out for a walk with our dog. It was full morning, the sun up, and they were walking along the highway about a mile and a half from the house, when he saw a wolf chasing a deer. In broad daylight.
All this is worrying me a bit, especially as far as our dog is concerned. There do seem to be a lot of wolves, their population in rapid increase as they feed on our abundant population of wild boars, deer, and the occasional goat. Does anybody know anything about living with a wolf population? This is farm country, in the hills.
