The European grey wolf is making a comeback in France.
“The wolves are feared to be making the capital their new home now - where they are likely to prove a challenge for the urban fox who, as in the UK, have nestled in urban environments. Larger and fiercer than their canine cousins, it's feared the wolves will shun them out. The wolves' natural habitat is the French Alps and the Massif Central where they were hunted to near extinction in the 1930s. They were awarded special protection as an endangered species - meaning nothing can be done to curb their numbers to halt their spread.”
Jeremy, I love this—go Wolves!
They can read—correct?—how else did they know they could expect to collect benefits and threaten the foxes!
One can only hope that the wolves return to their venerable Parisian tradition of dragging Frenchmen out into the wintry night in times of famine and blight. In Baltimore foxes have been driven into my backyard by coyotes, one of which I am sure I saw a few years ago on a city street.
Hatfield’s and McCoy’s…. Moscow style. See the videos.
