Episode 36

In September, the annual 3-week fall hunt takes place in the canton of Graubünden. In 2016 alone, 5 500 hunters killed almost 13 000 hoofed animals in and around the Calanda wolf pack. The hunting behaviour of humans differs considerably from wolves.

Wolves take down mostly the young, old and the sick, and in doing so strengthen the overall health of the herds.
