Switzerland is currently home to around 300 wolves and around 1.5 million cattle. Cow husbandry is considered a cultural asset and it is impossible to imagine Switzerland without it. Although the main food of wolves is wild animals and especially cervids, farm animals are also killed. Mostly sheep are affected, sometimes also large farm animals such as cattle or donkeys. A broad-based KORA project is finding out under which conditions low-conflict coexistence can succeed.
