Human Killed by Wolves

For the first time in centuries, a human has been killed by wolves in Sweden. The killed human was one of the caretakers of the wolves at the zoo Kolmården in the southeastern part of Sweden.

Nobody knows why the wolves killed their caretaker. She was alone with them, so there are no witnesses. This is something that was according to protocol, but which I believe was foolish. Wolves belong to the same species as dogs do, but wolves do not have the interited friendship with humans that dogs have.

So far, the zoo has decided not to kill the wolves who might have killed the human. They are not even sure how many of the wolves took part in the killing. I think it is wise to try to establish what happened, before taking any action against the wolves. They, too, deserve a fair trial.
