Scandinavia: Wolf from the Finnish-Russian population wanders in the north TY @proudvegan

An wolf immigrant from the Finnish-Russian population roams in northern Scandinavia on the border between Norway and Sweden.
Employees of the Norwegian Naturwacht have already determined from DNA analysis that the wolf  comes from the Finnish-Russian population.
- The wolf is apparently on the hike to look for a suitable area and a partner. The tracks are located mostly towards the Gulf of Bothnia, according to Mattias Larsson, Ranger at the National Administration of Norrbotten.
Larsson reported that only 2 weeks ago the wolf remained near Rostujaure and according to unconfirmed information by individuals, the wolf was seen near Deartavággi, about 10 km from the Swedish border.
- Snow is coming, thereby making better conditions than before to track the animal, says Mattias Larsson.

(Note: Whether this Wolf remains permanently it has a right to survive in the reindeer herding areas of Sweden and Norway.
Immigrants from the Finnish-Russian population are particularly important to the severely affected population in Scandinavia from inbreeding and  the Wolf Management Plan in Sweden, at least on paper, wants the wolves to migrate.
Past experience has shown that protective hunting applications of Sami communities would be made soon, after an immigrant from the East appeared there. The Wolf Management team responded and to date have anesthetized  wolves from a helicopter and the resettled them in the southern regions of Sweden outside the reindeer herding areas. This has always been very costly.
Mostly, however, the evacuees wandered back into the north and then died as a result of the so-called Protection Hunting or they simply "disappeared."  Only once has a wolf couple relocation been called successful.
