    I can't recall perfectly but I did a bit of reading about a year or so ago on wolves - I seem to have dim recollections that India was one region with higher than average reports of wolf predation on people (primarily children). Certainly not epidemic proportions; but a higher instance than in other areas.

    I wonder if this means they've got a LOT more work to do at ground-roots in the local communities. Even the article linked reports on the high chances of mature wolves being killed by local people (prompting rescue of the young but also making the species highly under threat).
