A wolf has repeatedly been spotted in nature reserves in central Drenthe over the past months. According to forestry association Staatsbosbeheer, this could be a sign that the animal may be settling down in the Netherlands. Though this will only be confirmed if every sighting was the same wolf, and if it stays in the same area for more than six months.

A wolf was spotted on the Veluwe. Experts from wolf associations Wolven in Nederland and the Lupus Institute in Germany confirmed that the animal is indeed a wolf,based on photo material. After disappearing from the Netherlands around 150 years ago, this is the third wolf to cross the German border into the Netherlands this year, the Volkskrant reports.

About a month after the discovery of a lone wolf in Luttelgeest, a calf was possibly attacked by a wolf on a different location. Wim Tegels, a wolf expert, reported this to the magazine ‘De Boerderij’ (The Farm). The dead animal showed a number of characteristics that are typical for a wolf attack.

The farmer concerned, who wishes to remain anonymous, sent Tegels pictures that shows that the calf has sustained major injuries after the fatal attack. Guts were drawn from the animal and a leg was missing.

The dead wolf on July 4 which was found in Luttelgeest, Noordoostpolder, was probably of Eastern European descent. The beast came almost certainly to the Netherlands from Eastern Czech Republic, Southern Poland or Slovakia. It is also likely that the wolf has lived for a while in the Netherlands.

The DNA of the animal corresponds for 96.5 percent to wolves from the Carpathians, in addition to 3 percent Italian DNA and 0.5 percent DNA of a dog.

The dead wolf which was found in Luttelgeest, is probably a joke and left there  by Eastern Europeans. That says fauna manager Nettie van den Belt of Fauna Management Flevoland.

According to Van den Belt jokes with dead animals occur more often. “About two or three years ago we got a notification that a seal was found. Which also appeared to be deposited by a fisherman as a joke.”

Around Luttelgeest many Eastern Europeans work in the greenhouses and the wildlife manager thinks that they have left behind the dead wolf on the road
