Number of wolves in France rising

There are now a recorded 360 wolves in France, up from 292 in 2016, showing an increase of 23%. There are also now 42 wolf packs, up from 35, according to data by the ONCFS, a national agency which monitors the animals…The increased presence of the animal will no doubt spark controversy. Farmers have campaigned for the population to be controlled after losing livestock and there was tension recently when it was revealed wolves are living near Paris.
