Such stories are daily bread to us and again we managed to be in the righ tplace in the right time. The second time we saved wolf caught in a snare. The information about the wolf we received on sunday morning from hunters associated in Lynx Dobiegniew Hunting Club. The hunters during searching hunting area encountered the trapped wolf near Chrapow spot. After the arriving at the place it turned out that that was big, about 8 years old, experienced wolf, probably the alpha male, that is a leader of a pack. The wolf was caught in steel loop tightened around its pelvis and slightly immersed in skin. The animal was very weakened and that meant that it had been there for about four days. Luckily, the wolf did not have bleeding wounds, so we decided to intervene as little as possible and immediately relase him. We installed telemetery collar on him to monitor his trails. On the area of this incident there is a weak GSM signal, so we may wait for first telemetry data received for a week or two. Anyway, any data received would mean that the wolf is alive and this is the most important information to us now. We would like to send thousand thanks to hunters who passed the information about the wolf to us. Thanks to them we carried out successful operation and the wolf is probably alive. At their request the wolf has been given the name “Rysiu”, taken from the name of the hunting club. Therefore, keep our fingers crossed for the wolf called “Rysiu”. If you know about similar situations, please inform us. The fate of wild animals is in our hands. Let’s protect them from cruelty of poachers.
