Instead, it entails capturing individual wolves that are known to attack a local flock and then marking these bothersome predators before letting them go. The theory is that the animal will be so traumatized by the experience that it will leave the sheep alone and instead hunt for deer, boar, rabbits and other wild animals.
Mark them how? Shave an eyebrow? Write funny stuff on them with a marker? What sort of trauma are we talking about? Embarrassment? Are these liberal wolves who are easily intimidated. Forgive my skepticism, this sounds like the same crap libs try with people that doesn't work either.
Better plan: Put all of France's wolves on public assistance. They will never hunt anything again, ever. They will grow fat and lazy and hang around town centers annoying passerby.
