Wolf alert — Mid-Wales
Well– not quite. But it gave us quite a turn.
I was innocently photographing lambs at play when they yelled ‘Wolf!’ and hurtled towards me in panic.
I didn’t believe them but have a closer look at the photograph
It is, in fact, a very well behaved cousin of wolf, the DNA is unmistakable even to a two week old lamb — they and their mothers cleared the paddock near the road in seconds — I didn’t even know they had a major evacuation plan.
They don’t like big cats either, or little ones — there is something about their shape that is hard wired into their perception of danger. It’s a shame because Midnight, one of our farm cats, likes to walk around with me.
But they will not tolerate him anywhere near when they are about to have their lambs!
