First generation of Italian - Slovenian wolves in the Eastern Alps

Friday, 30 August 2013

The first breeding of wolves in the eastern Italian Alps was observed in the Lessinia region, near to Verona (north-east Italy).

 It was confirmed on August 7 by videos trapping installed by rangers of the regional park Lessinia, which attest the presence of 2 cubs of about 4 months.

This reproduction was expected for months by the global scientific community, since these two strains of population had not been in contact for 150 years.
