Packs of wolves are out after flocks of reindeer in Sakha Republic in northeast Russia and this has forced the authorities to declare a sort of emergency and orders have been issued to hunt down the animals.

The measures have been announced by Yegor Borisov, the President of Sakha when he came to know of numerous attacks by the wolves.

It seems in 2012, more than 16000 reindeer were savaged by the wolves – that was nearly 4.3% increase over the previous year.

This has been reported in bbc.com of dated the 7th of January 2013.

The hunting season would begin on the 15th of January – the 'battle' would be of 3-months duration – successful hunters would be suitably rewarded.

There are an estimated 3500 wolves in the region and the objective is to reduce it to around 500.

The 'rewards' would be in millions or Roubles for those who bring in the maximum number of wolf pelts – 1 million rouble is the equivalent of $32824 and such an incentive would be welcome for the locals of the under-developed region.
