Wolf cubs in Jutland, Denmark, 2018 Denmark to tag wild wolves after shooting row By News from Elsewhere… …as found by BBC Monitoring These are external links and will open in a new window Image caption Danish scientists filmed wolf cubs in Jutland earlier this year Denmark is to tag its first wild wolf pack in 200 years with GPS trackers, in order to keep tabs on the wolves and protect them from hunters. The government has given Aarhus University permission to tag ten wolves in a catch-and-release scheme, as it is not clear whether some have crossed into Germany, the DR public broadcaster reports. Danes thought their last wolves had died out in the early 19th century, until one was spotted in Jutland six years ago. The female later mated, and Denmark announced last year that it now has a fully-fledged pack . Copenhagen University’s wolf programme, which was set up to monitor the pack, believes the first pair moved to Denmark from the forests of eastern Germany. But the reasons for the tagging are not purely scientific. Environment Jakob Ellemann-Jensen acknowledged that farmers in Jutland are concerned that the wolves are varying their standard diet of deer with the occasional sheep. “The arrival of wolves in Denmark has prompted considerable public concern, and I understand that,” he said, adding that tagging will help scientists learn more about the wolves and “hopefully make Danes feel safer,” the Dagens news site reports. This comes after a member of the public was filmed shooting a wolf dead in May, in a case that caused nationwide outrage.

A Closer Look At Practical Tactics

7-Eleven owners say they feel disenfranchised by new pact with Japanese-owned chain

7-Eleven owners say they feel disenfranchised by new pact with Japanese-owned chain (Brian van der Brug / Los Angeles Times) “They’re basically ignoring us and then squeezing more money out of us,” said Jas Dhillon, coalition treasurer and a San Fernando Valley store owner since the late 1990s. “But they’re looking at short-term goals. They don’t care if two years down the road, with the minimum wage rising, that the stores won’t be profitable.” 7-Eleven has defended the agreement, saying that only a minority of owners oppose it and that the new terms will help 7-Eleven fund new fresh-food and other offerings, as well as update the stores’ technology — all of which should help boost store sales. It also notes that franchisees who sign on before the end of this year — potentially renewing early — will keep their current profit split for as long as 11 more years. “We have a proven model, and it’s been very successful for many years,” said Chris Tanco, 7-Eleven’s chief operating officer. “If they make more money, we make more money,” he said. In recent years, as retail has been upended by online sales, 7-Eleven has taken steps to keep up. The U.S. stores are now heavily promoting an app that allows patrons to win points and apply them to food and drinks. It also has a partnership with Postmates, which makes home deliveries in dozens of cities. The chain wants to innovate even more.
