In the statement, it was reminded that there are no measures against wolf attacks on livestock in farms.
Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, said: “The wolf pack density in some areas in Europe is starting to become a real danger to livestock and possibly also to humans. I call on local and national authorities to take action where necessary. Current EU The laws already allow for action.” she used the phrase.
The EU Commission also called on local authorities, scientists and interested parties to send their data on the wolf population and their effects, within the scope of studies on the problems arising due to the reappearance of wolves in Europe.
It was noted that the collected data could be used in proposals to make the laws on the protection of wolves “more flexible” “where necessary”.
