A corresponding video, apparently recorded on Saturday in Pernitz (Wiener Neustadt district), which the “Kurier” (Sunday edition) reported on, was circulating on the Internet. You can see a four-legged friend moving near a road and train tracks. Aldin Selimovic, an expert from the Research Institute for Wildlife Science, assessed the animal as a wolf in response to an APA request.
According to Selimovic, both the general markings in the fur as well as the body proportions and movement of the four-legged friend in the video match that of a wolf. The goal for the next few days is to locate DNA in the area in the form of a fecal sample. The aim is to find out “whether the animal is known or a newcomer,” emphasized the wolf representative from the Research Institute for Wildlife Science.
A wolf sighting in the state caused a stir at the beginning of May. One of the predators was observed in a residential area in Pürbach near Schrems (Gmünd district) in the Waldviertel.
A new wolf regulation has been in force in Lower Austria since April. A prior official order for deterrence or shooting is no longer required. Rather, the behavior of the predator was determined, which can have corresponding consequences. If hunters scare away the wolf in the form of warning or frightening shots, this is “undesirable behavior”; if it is shot, this is “problematic behavior” on the part of the wolf. Every measure must be reported to the responsible district authority.
