The genetically important female wolf that EPA is moved again in his territory near Junsele. There are no major rensamlingar in the area because the villages had time to move their reindeer during the time the female wolf is not found in the area. It is probable that the female wolf now remain in the territory. Drop-off collar with transmitter, which was put on in conjunction with the female wolf moved, has come off by itself.
Female wolf and her male stood in the winter with extensive problems for reindeer herding. Reindeer demolished and flocks dispersed. In field grazing 4 000–5 000 reindeer in winter. Various alternatives were tried. Female wolf had been moved three times before. Since moving is stressful for the animal judged Environmental Protection Agency that it not be appropriate to move her again.
On behalf of the government tried Environmental Protection Agency along with the county administrative boards and the Sami villages to find a solution to female wolf and her male could stay and get puppies in Jung Harness.
But the damage to reindeer herding was serious and extensive and it was hard to find a solution. Twice awarded the Environmental Protection Agency culling. In the first chase sacrificed male wolf. Both times, the decision has been appealed to the Administrative Court of the Association Nordulv, Predators Association and the Society for Nature Conservation and the hunt is stopped.
Since it was not possible to implement a cull investigated the Environmental Protection Agency if it was possible that despite previous recommendations to move the female wolf a fourth time. The 8 March, the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to move the female wolf. The decision comes from 12 March to 31 mars 2013.
Female wolf moved
The 14 March caught the female wolf in and moved. It was a spirited female is released from between Rimbo and Edsbro in Norrtälje. She recovered quickly after the move and went away from the site.
The night of Maundy Thursday continued the female wolf to wander north and was in the northern part of the municipality of Örnsköldsvik five to six mil from the place where she was captured – see map below.
During the Easter weekend returned female wolf to his territory near Junsele. There are no major rensamlingar in the area because the villages had time to move their reindeer during the time that the female wolf is not found in the area. It is probable that the female wolf now remain in the territory. Drop-off collar with transmitter, which was put on in conjunction with the female wolf moved, has come off by itself. The county administrative boards collaborates with the Sami villages on measures to minimize risk of damage to reindeer herding. EPA is working.
