Wolf spotted in two places near Kristianstad
On Friday, a wolf sighting was reported on social media near the shooting range in Vä. It’s said to be a male. Länsstyrelsen (the County Administrative Board) has also received a report of another sighting from the public.
– A farmer saw a lone wolf by Hovby. We believe it to be an accurate observation, says Tom Espgård from Länsstyrelsen Skåne.
About a week ago, there was a wolf attack at Borrestads Gods, between Degeberga and Östra Sönnarslöv. A deer was mauled near a residential building. Now Länsstyrelsen knows which wolves it was.
– We inspected the estate and took a sample from the deer. There were DNA traces from two individuals. It’s the male and female that were previously seen moving around in the area. They have a territory of at least 12,000 hectares, says Tom Espgård.
