GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — Who's afraid of big, bad wolves? If you’re one of the soldiers stationed at the Grafenwoehr Training Area, you might want to keep an eye out for them. But if you practice common sense, you don’t need to be afraid of them.

“Wolves need enough to eat and a retreat area; both available in abundance at (the Grafenwoehr Training Area),” he said. “Thousands of red deer, roe deer, wild boar, hare and beaver make up an excellent food source.

“The vast impact areas and surface danger zones between the ranges provide lots of undisturbed places to stay for rest or for digging a (litter) den. Active and former military training areas have been the stepping stones for the spread of wolves all over Germany.”

It said there are 73 packs of wolves spread through seven of Germany’s 16 federal states, and their numbers are rising.
