Yes, I can see what you’re saying. It could be fake news. On the other hand, it’s not unfathomable the news could’ve crossed enemy lines via a neutral country. It is a strange story to make up and more than one source mentions it. And when you think about it could it have been that wolf numbers had been building for some time for the reasons you state, 3 years of war; 3 years of population growth. The numbers reached saturation point and, suddenly unarmed humans become a tempting target because they are big, yet not fast and relatively easy to hunt compared to a deer. So they develop a taste for human flesh which lead to this incident?
