Dutch nature reserve moving mouflons abroad to protect them from wolves

From NLTimes.nl in the Netherlands:

De Hoge Veluwe National Park is temporarily moving part of its mouflon herd abroad to protect them from the she-wolf believed to be somewhere in the park. The wild sheep will return once the wolf is gone. The mouflons staying on De Hoge Veluwe will be placed behind a wolf-resistant fence.

According to the head of operations, Jako Leidekker, these measures are necessary because a she-wolf has already attacked and killed dozens of mouflons. The she-wolf entered the nature reserve in the summer through a hole in the fence and now seems to be in the woods there. De Hoge Veluwe is against the wolf’s return to the Veluwe and wants to remove the animal from the park. But as the wolf is a heavily protected species, this requires intensive consultations with the governments.
