Between October 21 and December 24, 2022, a total of 22 sheep were killed by a wolf in the communities of Schwarzenburg, Rüschegg, Zimmerwald, Rüeggisberg and Niedermuhlern, according to the Bernese Economic, Energy and Environmental Directorate.
Ten of these sheep were adequately protected with herd protection measures. The legally stipulated damage limit was thus reached, so that the canton issued a shooting permit on December 26th.
On Wednesday morning there was a sheep tear in Oberbalm. When the male wolf tried to rejoin the herd, the game warden was able to kill him. The carcass is taken to the Institute for Fish and Wildlife Health at the University of Bern.
