The Norwegian Environmental Protection Agency (SNO) believes that the tracks reported in a residential area near the center of Askim are probably wolf tracks. They ask people to report wolf sightings.
“There have been multiple observations, of tracks, excrement, but also of the animal,” senior adviser Ida Glemminge at the SNO told Smaalenene.
She is not surprised by the observations and thinks the tracks can probably be attributed to a stray animal.
The SNO has secured excrement samples and sent them for DNA analysis to clarify whether the observations are correct.
The sightings are taking place at the same time as the hunting season for wolves is in full swing, including in the area east of Askim in Østfold.
