Wolf and Dog

 

No other wild animal causes such strong emotions as the wolf. Wolves are associated with very conflicting reactions because they were mercilessly persecuted for centuries and extinct since the last century. The image of the children eating beast is opposed by the beauty and ferocity of this animal. With the unexpected return of this hunter a controversial discussion is taking place in public. This discussion can also be taken up in classes to encourage pupils. Unfortunately wolves can only be seen in zoos. But dogs – as the wolves domesticated bred and descendants – are great for learning about the issue of appearance and behaviour.

Main aims of the actions

  • Learn about behaviour of large carnivores as wolves and dogs
