A fact of chronicle happened in the mountains
of the Laga at the end of October 2006 has had a lot of prominence in the
The newspapers are instigated with the strangest conjectures giving a lot of
prominence to this fact defined anomalous.
Here is the history:
Two Abruzzesi shepherds dogs have saved a
wolf from the certain death.
The wolf was torn up by a wild boar trap. He had
dragged himself up to the farm that
was guarded by two Abruzzesi shepherds dogs.
Normally they would have rejected the wolves or the stray dogs that had drawn
near to the stall.
However this time the shepherds dogs seem to know the wolf was injured
and that he was not a danger and they let him enter the barn where the wolf
When the shepherds entered the sheepfold they were amazed to see the
wolf in the company of the dogs.
The shepherds immediately called a veterinarian that has taken care of him
and submitted then to the forest rangers that have moved him to the Zoo in
Rome where it is out of danger now.
The dogs have become famous and the event has even been treated as miraculous.
It is undoubtedly an event that seems abnormal at first, when viewed through
human eyes, but if looked at according to the rules of nature then the mystery
can be resolved.
Why they have not attached??
fact that the two dogs have not attacked the wolf can seem strange but in
reality the shepherd dogs almost always avoid to kill the raiders if these don't
represent a danger.
An aggressive dog cannot be never excessively a good shepherd dog.
The dogs are generally limited to hold the wolves away from their perimeter and
to run after them for some hundred meters.
Often during this ritual of run can happen that escape us some bite but
rarely the bites are deadly.
it is as if the dogs meant the wolves: "go out from here this is our zone"; only
that not could speak they use this way of communicating fact of barking, bites
and turns of admonishment.
Many of this behavior are surprised for many unnatural.
In reality being the wounded wolf, has come to miss that rubber band that makes
to go off the whole reaction of the dogs.
