If a wolf just any people or stray dogs would attack, he may be killed with an injection or a gun. That find the Dutch provinces, which together form a wolvenplan have been drawn up in december, which will be decided.

Like Belgium, the Netherlands, more and more wolves. The animals are all at different places having regard to, inter alia, on a Groningen-based industrial park in 2015.
