Moved wolves are returning to where they came from

One of the two genetically important wolves that the Environmental Protection Agency moved over the winter, in order to protect reindeer, has now more or less returned to the area it originally was moved from. The other has also wandered north. Both of them have moved between 500 and 800 kilometres.

Fredrik Wilde at the country administrative board in Örebro told Swedish Radio News that: "This wolf has moved incredible distances. We could not have imagined this."

The moving of wolves is part of the Government policy to strengthen the wolf population, which is not genetically sound. The fact that the moved wolves are returning to the areas they were moved from, puts a spanner in the works of this policy. "one should not draw too hasty conclusions, but so far, it does not look good," says Fredrik Wilde.
