Slitherlink Solution


Unless otherwise indicated, standard slitherlink rules apply to all variants.

Sheep and wolves: Additionally the grid contains sheep which must be kept inside the loop, and wolves which must be kept outside the loop.

Borderlines: The grid is split into regions. The loop must run along the perimeters so that the loop either uses or leaves the same amount of line segments around each region as the size of the region itself.
