Young wolf killed by car in Gelderland, may be part of Veluwe family – DutchNews.nl

A young wolf has been knocked down and killed by a car near Epe by the Veluwe heathlands, forester Ger Verwoerd from nature organisation Geldersche Landschappen & Kastelen has confirmed.

The wolf was hit on Wednesday morning and ran into the woods where it was later found dead. The driver had alerted police who used a specialist hunting dog to track the wounded animal.

The wolf, thought to be about a year old, will undergo a post mortem and dna tests to see if it is part of the litter of wolves born in the area last year.

At least five wolves were known to be living in the Netherlands at the end of 2019.
