Wild Wolves Return to Denmark
It’s no pack of lies. For the first time in two centuries, wolves are roaming the Danish wilderness, a University of Aarhus zoologist has confirmed. While the presence of individual males has been observed since 2012, scientists have only now obtained DNA evidence through genetically profiling the feces of a whole pack. The four males and one female, thought to have traveled over 300 miles from neighboring Germany, are the first wild pack verified in Denmark since 1813. Researchers are now closely following the wolves, hoping a new litter could be imminent.
