According to The Windsor Star, a woman in Georgia, near the village of Giorgitsminda, about 40 kilometers from the capital Tbilisi, was found dead, killed by a pack of wolves. What’s most disgusting about this event is that it didn’t need to happen.

Over the past month there have been several reports of wolf attacks on humans and livestock in the area. Two weeks ago a woman was attacked by wolves and seriously injured in the village of Pirosmani. But now that this woman has died authorities “are handing out weapons to locals for self defense”.

We can only assume what kinds of “weapons” they are handing out for protection; bear spray? wolf repellent? perhaps a slightly used pitchfork?

I wonder if wolves in George are protected under some endangered species law?
