Starving Wolves Attack Village In China

Starving Wolves Attack Village In China

A pack of starving wolves surrounded a small farming community in China this week and attacked the six people living there, injuring two of them seriously.

The attack happened shortly after midnight and has shocked many as it was previously thought that wolves steered clear of humans. After the people living on the farm managed to flee, the wolves attacked farm animals killing several.

For a pack to attack a residential building and six people is reportedly unheard of at least in Altay village in north-western China's Xinjiang region where two people were hospitalised. Injuries included a bitten off ear and bites and scratches to the face, neck and chest.

The animals have apparently been driven mad by hunger caused by the worst drought in decades in the region where the average rainfall was down by a third affecting nearly a million hectares of crops. Hundreds of thousands of farm animals have also been left without water and the economic damage is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions.

The drought has brought near disaster to the Ili River valley that has seen no rainfall in what is the worst drought in 60 years. Many of the animals that the wolves might have otherwise fed on have died from lack of food and the animals have reportedly been sent mad with hunger.
