A group of angry French farmers brought their sheep to the center of Paris Thursday to protest over a government policy that they say is too kind to wolves. Around 250 sheep grazed on straw bales in front of the Eiffel Tower to highlight what shepherds say is an increasing incidence of attacks by wolves, which are protected under the ecology ministry's Plan Loup (wolf plan).
