Italy: ‘Urban’ wolves get alarmingly close to humans

Italians are worried that wild wolves are becoming too comfortable making forays into towns and villages across the country, it seems.  The latest proof that the animals are getting dangerously close to humans came when a driver ran over a wolf near the northern city of Turin, Torino Today reports.  In October, residents of a town in Italy’s coastal region of Liguria said they saw a wolf roaming the streets in broad daylight, showing no signs that it was afraid of humans.
