Wolves making comeback in Germany

Oct 27, 2007

A German wolf expert says the country's wolf population is establishing a new foothold.

Ilka Reinhardt told Der Spiegel there are 30 wolves living in Germany, more than the country has had in 200 years.

She said populations are increasing all over Europe, although Norway only has 20 wolves, Switzerland knows of three wolves living there and there are only nine packs roaming the wilds of Sweden, the newspaper said. A recent study shows wide swaths of eastern Germany, as well as parts of the south and west, would make ideal homes for wolves.
