This video says about itself:
28 June 2017
A diet of leverets will not be enough to sustain a growing pup or feed an entire wolf pack, so bigger prey is needed. The problem is bigger prey like the hare are incredibly agile and can run up to speeds of 60 km per hour. If this wolf pack are not going to go hungry, they will need to hunt as a unit.
Translated from RTV Noord in Groningen province in the Netherlands today:
This Friday morning a dead wolf was brought to Fauna Vision Foundation Wildcare in Westernieland.
The wolf has been transferred for investigation to the Dutch Wildlife Health Centre (DWHC), which is affiliated with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Utrecht. Lollinga: “They will create a DNA profile of the wolf. Subsequently, it will be checked whether he matches with a wild population in Germany.”
Wolves are at present not a resident species in the Netherlands. After hunters exterminated them in the nineteenth century, recently rarely vagrant wolves arrive from Germany.
