GORNO-ALTAISK, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Local authorities in Russia’s republic of Altai plan to spend as many as two million roubles to reduce the growing population of wolves terrorizing dwellers of remote settlements, a spokesman for the republican animal protection committee told Itar-Tass.
According to the spokesman, currently the population of wolves numbers 1,000 aminals. The authorities are ready to pay 3,000 roubles for each killed beast. Last year, a total of 1.8 million roubles were paid to hunters for 600 killed wolves.
Every year, the local authorities organize battue hunting for wolves, but these measure are not enough to bring down the number of wolves in the republic.
