Action plan to protect flocks of sheep.

Wolves crossing into Switzerland from the south are thought to be responsible for two attacks on sheep flocks in canton Bern over the past few months, in which 14 animals have died. The wolf is an endangered species and is heavily protected, so the Bernese authorities and sheep farmers have agreed on a strategy that should protect both the predator and its prey.
