Man-Wolf Conflict Continues
15 May 2018
On 9th of April the experts of Civil Voice NGO recorded a tortured wolf in Abovyan city.
The incident took place in the green zone adjacent to the rubbish dump of Abovyan city. In the mentioned territory near the tree we witnessed a large size wolf's body which had been tied to the tree but did not have gunshot injuries, however it was evident that the wolf was tortured.
Civil Voice NGO applied to the Ministry of Nature Protection of RA and to the Environmental Protection and Mining Inspection Body of MNP of RA on this issue.
In response to our letter the Environmental Protection and Mining Inspection Body of MNP of RA informed us that while the wolf had been transported to the nearest area he might be already dead. But, Civil Voice NGO also sent a video to their email where it’s clearly visible that the animal was tied to the tree and brutally tortured. This is the result of a cruel treatment of animal. The cruel treatment of predatory animals should be prevented and brought to account in the manner prescribed by law.
