Dead animal in North Bohemia confirmed to be wolf

A DNA analysis has proven that the dead animal found in a forest in the region of Česká Lípa two weeks ago was a wolf. Investigation has also shown that the female wolf didn’t die a natural death, the spokeswoman for the Czech Republic’s Nature Conservation Agency said on Friday, adding that the incident is being investigated by the police. Scientists are also trying to find out if the female wolf belonged to a pack of wolves which was spotted in the area about a year ago. Wolves are critically endangered species in the Czech Republic and are subject to special protection.
