Wolves Run Amok in Georgian Village
Most wolf news we cover is located in North America. However it appears that the country of Georgia has a wolf problem that makes the North American variety seem tame. According to Bloomberg.com a wolf pack has been razing the town of Sajijao.
“The wolves have killed as many as 100 farm animals in the village recently,” said Roman Rekvava, mayor of the village of Sajijao. “They prowl through the village at night,” he said in comments broadcast on Imedi television today.
Furthermore wolves have killed two people (a woman in February of 2009 and a man more recently) and mauled at least one person over the last two years. It is illegal to kill wolves in Georgia other than for self defense reasons.
