The moment a hunter shoots dead one of the only wild wolves to roam free in Denmark for 200 years has been caught on camera.
The wolf was crossing the land owned by the former parliamentary candidate, Steffen Troldtoft, when it was shot dead. Two naturalists were observing the wolf, who was said to be a female when a man allegedly shot the animal dead.
Guillaume Chapron, associate professor at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, has stated the killing was ‘completely unacceptable’ with the wolf showing no sign of aggressive behavior before it was shot but ‘rather a mix of caution and curiosity’.
Police have arrested the 66-year-old who shot the wolf for animal cruelty.
