Abundance and population trends of wolf in Croatia in 2005

The data compiled and processed for 2005 show that the wolf population ranged from 160 to 220 individuals, for an average of 190 individuals distributed in some forty packs. Local experts assessed that the wolf population size has not changed in comparison with recent years, except in the area of Šibenik-Knin County, where increases in the amount of damage incurred to livestock implies an increase in the wolf population, and in Dubrovnik-Neretva County, where the numbers were suddenly and drastically reduced (Desnica and Štrbenac, 2005).
