Over all the last years more and more wolves coming back from Germany to the Netherlands .Now we have a few packs and some lonely wolves here, I think Holland is too small to survive some wolves have been kill by cars, the reason they come here, is territory .. packs from Germany look for enough space over the border here in the Netherlands. Farmers wouldn,t be happy many wolves have kill some sheeps over here....
the last video a wolf running in a small village....

Since the very beginning of time we have encroached on wildlife's habitats to a point where we will probably remove most other species, other than our own, from the planet.
Of course, if we keep populating at our present rate, we will probably eventually eliminate ourselves over time.
Where I live we get to spot a wolf once in a while and on occasion they wake us up at night. Here, they have been almost completely replaced by coyotes which are now hybridizing with the wolf into a coy-wolf which seem to tolerate more the presence of humans. The coy-wolf is a very effective hunter of whitetail deer specially in the winter's deep snow.
Thanks for sharing BM. Best to you and your family over this Holiday Season and best wishes for the New Year.

I was driving near my home last year and saw a flock of turkeys feeding in a nearby field. Then, just a short distance down the road, a pair of LARGE coyotes crossed in front of me, obviously hoping to hunt down a turkey dinner! The coyote in Canada seems to be quite different from the smaller ones found in the American south-west. A pack of coyotes hunted down and killed a female hiker in 1990 in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
For many years, people have been going on wolf howls in Algonquin Park. The Algonquin wolf pack has been endangered for quite some time, and now it looks like it can't be saved in its pure form. Genetic tests during the 1990's revealed the Algonquin wolves were not gray wolves, but red wolves, once thought to be extinct in this part of the world. However, the Algonquin pack is under pressure from hunters outside the park, and also has been hybridizing with coyotes. Naturalists now list it as a separate species, the Algonquin wolf. There are fewer than 500 individuals left.

Even in my neighbourhood, there have been wolves sighted. This is not a surprise, since my front yard seems like a game preserve, with elk, deer, turkeys, coyotes, rabbits crossing it (all in the same day sometimes, lol). We have a gaggle of turkeys in our cul-de-sac that is around 20 birds, and the coyotes are trying to figure out how to get at them. Turkeys sleep in the big trees at night, so they are hard to hunt then, heck they are hard to see with the flashlight even though you can hear them clucking right above you, lol.

Good information Sunsilver have some dvd here from wolf packs in Yellowstone they have a very important function they care for balance in nature, however we humans have destroyed the nature for many years , animals have not enouh space for hunting and territory top predators like tigers,lions,jaquar and other many cats ,wild dogs, ,polar bears etc etc all of them are in big problems. Koots yes all have to do with territory they need space and come in conflict with humans in US coyotes, black bears live around cities to find food crazy situation.... Wish all members and family here merry Christmas and all the best in 2019 !!!!

@ Duke I don,t know what Czech dogs have to do with wolves in Holland, only what I know a pack of wolves will kill and eat German Shepherds for lunch.
