An investigation was opened after a call to "kill and make wolves disappear", a protected species in France, launched by a farmer president of the Rural Coordination of Creuse, indicated Sunday the Secretary of State in charge of biodiversity, Berangere Abba.

“You have to kill him, make him disappear and say nothing, that will be the best solution.

A farmer works to feed the human being, does not work to feed a predator such as the wolf "added Florian Tournadre, triggering in particular a prompt reaction from journalist Hugo Clément, declared defender-activist of the environment, on social networks. , who called on the government to "react to this offender".

Several sheep had been attacked at the end of December in the town of Féniers in Creuse, a department where a monitoring unit has been set up since 2020, made up of nature protection associations, state services, local and forestry communities.

Any sighting of the wolf must be reported to the departmental service of the French Office for Biodiversity (OFB).

At the beginning of December, the president of the Rural Coordination of Haute-Vienne Pierrick Gouteron, had signed a press release affirming that "a wolf on its territory is one wolf too many".

“We will not wait for the always too late conclusions of the OFB agents to solve the problem.

In Haute-Vienne, we have lead and poison and we will regulate ourselves!

he added.
