Wealthy Kazakhstan residents prefer wolves to guard their houses, Express-K reports.
New back-street business of wolf cubs selling is developing in Kazakhstan. Ads on selling wolves are available in newspapers and on the Internet. Tamerlan, one of the animals seller, said: “The reasons why people are buying wolf cubs are arrogance, foolishness and desire to protect their houses against thieves by all means.”
One wolf cub costs $500. Owners usually feeds the beasts of prey with cooked meat, instead of raw one to make them less aggressive. Would-be buyers are not afraid of the fact that mature wolves can be a danger to their owners and family members. “Those people who buy wolves are usually very well off. They’ve got special open air cages where they can keep the wolves. Owners get wolves to run in special enclosed area along the fence. Wolves can’t bark, but they can easily tear a thief apart,” Tamerlan said.
