Due to the increased amount of hunting dogs killed by wolves during this season, hunters are asking for compensation from the state to make up for the loss of their hunting partners. The dogs are used in boar hunts, and this is a rule commissioned by the Estonian Hunters´ Society.

The Estonian Environment Board (Keskonnaamet) gave a special permit until the end of March for hunting eight more wolves, although the wolf hunt season ended on Saturday, February 29, and from the allowed 86 wolves, 22 had not been culled, ETV´s current affairs show “Aktuaalne kaamera” reported.

Kind-hearted Estonian workers rushed to rescue a dog in distress from a freezing river on Wednesday – unaware of the fact they were actually about to bundle a wild wolf into their car.

The men were working on the Sindi dam on the Parnu river when they spotted the animal trapped in the icy water.

After clearing a path through the ice, they took the frozen canine to a clinic for medical care.
