Wolves keep attacking cattle in Armenia
YEREVAN, July 13. /ARKA/. Cattle-breeding business is the only means of subsistence to many families in Debed community in Armenia's Lori province, but their animals are periodically attacked by wolves.
Aravot reports that they are attacked every day. According to the newspaper, a wolf mauled a calf in mountains.
In recent days, a wolf mauled another calf in the same community.
Ashot Ghazaryan, one of the community council members, told the newspaper that wolves' attacks have inflicted damage to more than 15 families this year. They attacked cattle not only on pastures, but also inside the village.
The village residents say they have never applied to appropriate agencies for compensation, since they understand very well that this would be in vain.
Ghazaryan, however, thinks that the ministries of environment and agriculture should pay attention to this problem. --0---
