[Policeman] Anders Karlsson said to Radio Stockholm that he was shaken to stand eye-to-eye with the wolf. Initially the wolf went down the motorway towards Saltsjö-Boo and two police cars followed as an escort to prevent other vehicles threatening it.Wolves are protected and can't be shot even if they turn up in residential areas, but there hasn't been any attack on people for decades anyway. Moose are more of a risk when they come into housing areas loaded on cheap rotten apples and attack kids and cars. Bears are a problem too, a hunter was attacked by one recently and two people have been killed in the last century. Not to mention the mildly poisonous snakes. Sweden, the land of the moderately dangerous, but not too dangerous, wildlife.
A short distance from Skuru bridge the wolf turned and went over to the other side of the motorway, towards Stockholm. The Nacka police followed after it at a distance of 25 metres. Suddenly the wolf stopped and turned, looked at the police cars and walked between them and turned off into a bus garage in Björknäs and disappeared.
A few hours later it turned up on Vasa Street in Saltsjöbaden outside the Hansson family's kitchen window where they caught the wolf on film.
