    The stone shows a wolf's head with sticking out tongue with the year 1847 and under it the inscription, which reads:"Here was on 10.3.1847
    the last wolf in Württ.
    by Waldschütz Sorg
    taken from Eibensbach.
    He had in the area
    over 50 sheep in one
    Year torn. The wolf
    is prepared today in
    Staatl. Natural History Museum
                                    1969 "

    This "Wolfstein" is located in the forest between Spielberg (district of Sachsenheim) and Cleebronn, in the "Stromberg-Heuchelberg" nature reserve, Baden-Württemberg.In Germany there are around 30 so-called "wolf stones":
    - a so-called "Wolfstein" serves as a memorial
    - Such memorial stones have been erected in Germany since the 17th century
    - They were built in memory of special events with wolves (e.g. hunting a wolf)
    - Most of the wolf stones have an inscription with the name of the archer, the date of the slaughter, and partly also a carved image of the slain wolf
    - In more recent times, such stones serve as a reminder of the return of the wolves in Germany
