Wolf spotted in German place Nordhorn, 5 kilometers from Dutch borders
Last weeks, several observations of wolves have been done in the German border area. The wolf has been caught on picture several times. If it concern one wolf or more, is still unclear. It is most likely all cases concern a lone wolf that has setteld in the big forest and heathland Engdener Wuste/Hesper Moost, east of Nordhorn. This area is known as military training ground Nordhorn Range, about 10 kilometers from the border with Denekamp.
This fits the picture of wolves pack elswhere in Germany, who all have found a place to live in a relatively quiet and big military training ground, says Dutch wolf-expert Roel Korbee. He and other experts deem it very likely it indeed is a wolf. It is impossible to identify from just a picture, but fortunately DNA collected from feces are being tested as we speak, which will give assurance.
It is unclear whether this concerns a wandering animal, or a wolf that wants to settle here and is looking for a partner, or already has a partner. Last year, a wolf was spotted in the Dutch place Emmen. The dead wolf found in the Dutch Northeast Polder in 2013 turned out to be a hoax; research showed that the wolf was shot in Poland, and transported to The Netherlands.
based on experiences in Germany and West Poland, wolves are no danger to humans. They act extremely shy, but could eat sheep and calves. The main food source is wild roe.

Magical Blue Crystals Cover an Entire Room by Roger Hiorns
Seizure is a large-scale installation by British artist Roger Hiorns in which he used unexpected materials to transform an everyday room into a giant piece of art. To create the site-specific installation, Hiorns covered the surface of the interior with plastic sheeting. He then poured more than 20,000 gallons of boiling copper sulphate solution into the abandoned space and let the liquid cool for three weeks. As the liquid cooled, these strange blue crystalline growths began to form, covering the walls, the floors, and the ceiling. The remaining liquid was drained and sent out for special chemical recycling.
So fucking crazy.
