Cry `wolf' to save sheep!

These days Kazakh villagers are turning to wolves to guard their lands. “You can buy a
wolf cub for just $500, they say, and hunters are adamant that if treated well the wild animal can be tamed,“ said Kazakhstan's KTK television channel. But despite reports that the wolves are being successfully domesticated and trained, some are worried. “A wolf is like a ticking bomb, it can go off at any moment. If nothing is done, the fashion could spread to wealthy Kazakhs, who might try to keep wolves in the grounds of their houses, with possibly deadly consequences,“ Almas Zhaparov, a wolf expert, told the TV channel.
