Varför tror folk att vargar aldrig anfaller människor?
Har de läst det i en djuraktivistartikel eller hört det från en vilsen miljöpartist i riksdagen?
Vargar och björnar ska man inte betrakta som söta djur i skogen i klass med ekorrarna – de är rovdjur och man kan inte veta hur de reagerar vid ett möte med människan för de agerar instinktivt och på olika sätt från situation till situation.
Här är de vargattacker som skett hittills i år och under 2018. Lusäs beskrivningarna av incidenterna nedan, där flera varit helt oprovocerade, och ställ er frågan: Vad skulle inte kunna ske även här?
Min personliga åsikt om vargjakt är dock att vi ska vara rädd om detta vackra djur och vara stolta över att det finns i våra skogar. Men de individer som vistas för nära människorna måste vi ha noga koll på för vi är definitivt inte trygga då.
