Let’s bring the wolves back into Britain

…Wolves are doing well in western Europe – there have been plenty of sightings in neighboring Belgium…France, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain and Germany have reasonably healthy populations and there are a few score in Scandinavia too. Mostly they are isolated packs, though, some of them the consequence of reintroductions…They still can’t get across the channel, though, despite Eurostar. They will need our help…it is only in western Europe and the USA that wolves are afforded proper protection, which is one reason why we should play our part, having exterminated the creatures from these shores more than 250 years ago…Wolves would save farmers an awful lot of money in controlling red deer populations in Scotland, and furthermore, regenerate revenue from a tourist boom.
