Opponents of Wolves Put Up Illegal Signs in Valais

Unknown people have placed triangular signs with a warning of wolves along hiking trails in Valais, Switzerland. The signs depict an adult, a child, and a dog in front of a menacing wolf, which does not comply with legal regulations. The WWF Valais has criticized the signs, as they have caused fear of wolves and have led to people avoiding the trails. The Secretary of the responsible cantonal commission has confirmed that the signage on public roads must be approved by cantonal authorities, and that no such request was received. The signs have been placed in several Valais municipalities, and the Wolf Switzerland group sees them as part of a fear campaign. In the last 28 years, there have been no wolf attacks on humans or domestic dogs. The organization is preparing to file a criminal complaint.
