DNA analysis: The wolf is unknown (+)items
It shows the first DNA analysis by wolf droppings.
- There are indications that the wolf is of eastern origin, but it is not entirely clear yet and therefore made further DNA analyzes as we await answers to later in the week, says Alexander Winiger, predators administrator at the county government.

If the wolf would be of eastern origin are considered genetically more valuable than if it is of Scandinavian origin. Which in turn affects the county administrative board's handling of the application for the culling of Sami village of West Kikkejaure did last week.
- We strongly suspects that the wolf is on emigration. There are no signs of any territorial assertion in the tracking that we have made.
Alexander Winiger invites the public to be alert and report any sightings throughSkandobs, a service available on the internet.
- We had sightings of wolves in the Torne Valley and in Piteå area in the summer. Now there is snow and it's easier to see traces. We are interested about the wolves moved on, or if they are left.

“It's almost two weeks ago East Kikkejaures Sami village saw the first traces of what they quickly concluded was a wolf. Equally impressive was not the provincial government, who wanted to be absolutely sure of their ground before the confirmed task. DNA samples were taken on droppings, and the results confirm the Sami village fears.
- The responses show that there is a male wolf, but it is a new individual who is not in our database already. You can not see from the population it came from, and we find either no parents to match. Without speculating too much as it is by all accounts a walking wolf, these tend to be not very old – around 1,5 to 2 years old, says Alexander Winiger who are predators coordinator at Norrbotten County Administrative Board.
He says that they have taken further samples that will hopefully show the origin of the wolf has.
Last Friday received news of North reports that a new clean should have been taken of the wolf, this time about three kilometers from Martin Nilsson's house in Mountain Bonas.
- It has been a struggle, he said after visiting the site and seen it with my own eyes.
What is the future for the wolf out, do you think, Alexander Winiger?
- It depends on how it behaves. I assume that it migrates further. The argument for it is that it is a male, seeking tiksällskap and not so great propensity to settle down in one place alone.
Sami village has applied for protective hunting?
- No such thing will not decide until we know what it is for the individual, the answers are expected during the week.”

The wolf needed to nature to feel good
Biodiversity is vital for human beings to survive in the long term. Everything fit together and disappear a species often fall more from. A healthy wolf population helps keep other wildlife populations healthy. Eco-tourism can be developed. More and more people are concentrated in cities, and therefore, the demand for wilderness experiences increase. This creates jobs. The wolf also for its own sake. It is "created" by evolution without regard to man.
A timid wolf in its natural environment is hardly a threat to humans and the fact is that no one has been injured or killed by wolves in the wild in Sweden since the 1800s.
