Wolf back in the Netherlands, after over two centuries


Wolf of Noord-Sleen, photographed from a car

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:

The wolf is back in the Netherlands, says the foundation Wolves in the Netherlands. This morning the animal was spotted and photographed near Noord-Sleen, in the province of Drenthe. According to wolves expert Leo Linnartz there is no doubt. “It’s the same wolf as the last days was seen near the border with Germany.”

German colleagues of Linnartz informed him in recent days that the wolf was on its way to the Netherlands. “It was no surprise that this morning we received the message that one was seen.”

Linnartz is sure that the photos he has seen are real. “There is no indication that the story is not true. It’s all very reliable,” he says.

In 1772, the last wolf had been caught in this area in Drenthe.
