Wolves walking in the desert

14 November 2013

Wölfe durchqueren eine Schneewüste in Xinjiang, im Nordwesten Chinas. Wildtiere wie Wölfe und Wildschweine vermehren sich in dieser Region. Die Wölfe sind in China zwar gesetzlich geschützt, aber in manchen Gegenden wird dieses Gesetz nicht streng gehandhabt. Weil die Raubtiere manchmal ihr Vieh töten, haben Hirten in Xinjiang gefordert, die Jagd wieder aufzunehmen.

Wolves cross the desert snow in northwestern China. Wild animals such as wolves and boar are thriving in the region. Wolves are legally protected in China, though in some areas the law is not rigorously enforced. Herders in Xinjiang have called for hunting to be resumed, as wolves are killing livestock.

Los lobos cruzan el desierto de nieve, en Xinjiang, en el noroeste de China. Algunos animales salvajes, como lobos y jabalíes, se reproducen en esta región. Los lobos están protegidos en China, aunque en algunas regiones la ley no se cumple con rigor. Los pastores de Xinjian han solicitado que se reanude la caza, ya que los lobos están matando a su ganado.

Des loups, dans le désert enneigé du Xinjiang, au nord-ouest de la Chine. Les animaux sauvages tels que loups et sangliers abondent dans cette région. En Chine, la loi protège les loups, mais elle n’est pas rigoureusement appliquée dans toutes les régions. Des bergers du Xinjiang ont demandé la reprise de la chasse, car les loups tuent leur bétail.

Lupi attraversano il deserto imbiancato di neve nel Sinkiang, Cina nord-occidentale. Animali selvatici come lupi e cinghiali prosperano nella regione. In Cina i lupi sono protetti dalla legge che in alcune zone, però, non viene applicata rigorosamente. Nel Sinkiang i pastori rivendicano la ripresa della caccia, perché i lupi stanno uccidendo il bestiame.

Wolven steken de besneeuwde woestijn over, in Xinjiang, in het noordwesten van China. Wilde dieren zoals wolf en wild zwijn doen het goed in deze regio. Wolven zijn een beschermde diersoort in China, al worden de regels in sommige regio’s niet strikt gehandhaafd. Veehoeders in Xinjiang willen de jacht hervatten, omdat wolven vee aanvallen.
