First record of a golden jackal in the Northern Slovenia
Encounter with a Wild Wolf in Montenegro
This story happened during my third visit of Montenegro.
Last year I arrived to Republic of Montenegro on Sunday, 19th September. For spending my vacation I had chosen the magnificent place. I wanted to explore the wonderful Durmitor Mountains which were proclaimed as the national park in 1952.

Republic of Montenegro
Montenegro is a small but very beautiful country which we can find on the northeastern shore of Adriatic Sea. Once it was a part of former Yugoslavia. Montenegro´s landscape is very diverse, it consists of high mountains, virgin forests, deep valleys and rocky seashore with some beautiful sand beaches.
Montenegro is a country full of ancient towns as Cotor, Budva, Cetinje. Above the Bay of Kotor (famous Boka Kotorska) an abrupt massif of the Lovcen Mountains rises directly from the Adriatic Sea. On the vast mountain pastures herds of sheep, cows, goats and horses graze from spring to fall. Montenegrins live mainly on pastoralism. During summer season many of them sojourn in small wooden sheds called katun. They very often offer some milk and cheese to hikers.
