He is a Belgian-Luxembourgish wolf since he walks sometimes in Belgium, sometimes in Luxembourg.
Tuesday January 11, 2022, he was seen in broad daylight (which is rare) in the Wincrange sector (in the very north of the country near Clairvaux and Bastogne in Belgium).
A very high place for hiking with hundreds of trails, each more magnificent than the next.
Luxembourg was waiting for the wolf and preparing for it
It’s been several years since Belgium saw the return of the beast, whether in the Hautes-Fagnes region (it’s the “mountain range” of Belgium just above Luxembourg) or even in the very dense forest. in the Gaume region, 40km from Longwy.
These wolves would be French wolves from the region of Troyes who would have migrated to Belgium… to say that they feel better welcomed on the other side of the border, there is only one step!
Each time, the wolves choose regions of “hikers”, is the meeting with a walker possible?
What to do if you meet a wolf?
Know that if this happens to you, you will be very very lucky because it is extremely rare.
The wolf is a nocturnal animal (even if that of Luxembourg has been seen in broad daylight).
He is terrified of humans (if he meets him, he will be even more afraid than you, that is to say!).
Normally he should have sniffed you from far away and should scoot away before you land on him.
You shouldn’t see any near the hiking trails, it smells too much of man!
— Above all, don’t turn your back on it, don’t run away (it’s a big mistake not to do).
— Stay in front of him, keep calm… but yell at him!
— Throw objects at him, it’s weird but it intimidates him means and will make him back down.
— Raise your arms to make yourself more imposing.
— Step back slowly and keep your eyes on him.
After a few seconds, he will have to leave.
There is very little chance that you will encounter a wolf but it is always good to know.
