Peter Dettling spent 3 years in the Swiss Calanda region to film the very first Swiss wolf pack, wildlife and nature. The series ‘Once around the Sun with the Calanda wolves’ has 52 episodes, and publishes a new one every week. Follow his adventures, available in English and Deutsch.
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.
Episode 36 and the previous episodes are listed on Peter Dettling’s Vimeo homepage in English or Deutsch. With a purchased license, you can watch back all episodes at any time, and keep up to date on the new releases weekly.
