A new safety vest has been developed to save family pets from wolf attacks in Finland. So far, this year 32 dogs have been attacked by wolves near the eastern border.

Residents of the eastern town of Nurmes in Finland will be testing out a new invention designed to keep their pets safe next spring: A safety vest for dogs that contains chili cartridges.

If a wolf attacks a dog wearing the vest and punctures the fabric, the cartridges release chili powder that sprays on the wolf’s face and mouth.

They should just use the logic employed here in the USA and pass a law making it illegal for Wolves to attack dogs.

Yeah but this is on the eastern border. This means the wolves may be Russian. They don't care about Finnish wolf laws.

Those vests will just make them more spicy.

I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
