Another wolf had already been shot dead in early December 40 kilometres further north in the Val Blenio area. Other wolves had been spotted in recent months in the Magadino, Val Onsernone and Val Colla regions. There have also been numerous reports of harm to livestock.

Last spring local farmers placed dead sheep in front of a Bellinzona government building in protest at a sheep attack in the Valle Maggia region. They demanded more effective measures against wolf attacks.
