Couple attacked by wolves
A couple with a small child has reported that they were attacked by two wolves near Rörmossen, Norrtälje, one hour north of Stockholm.
The wolves also killed the couple’s dog, a Wachtel dog named Tyson, news agency TT reports.
According to Olof Liberg, an expert on wolves and their behaviour, they attacked the couple to protect their home range.
“This is not uncommon, we have several similar cases,” he said.
Wolves see dogs as intruders and focus on protecting their homes from them. It is rare that wolves attack humans. Liberg adds that, if you encounter a wolf, you should make a lot of noise and even throw rocks at them.
