Hello,

I found news over the history from the wolves in Wales by the UK Wolf conservation.

Link: www.ukwolf.org/news/79/we...lqte6ochehrg4t4

"Welsh willow wolf - a living sculpture

A living sculpture of a wolf has been planted in Coed y Bleiddiau, a location whose name translates as "Forest of Wolves". Locals say it's the area in which the last wolf was killed in Wales, so the planting of willows in the form of a wolf is a fitting monument."

I can't vouch for the accuracy of this. I was once looking at a property at Wolfcastle I think it was, near Pembroke and was told by some locals that the last wolf in the UK was shot there.

Yes Robb - Wolfscastle is near to Pembroke (where I live) but is really closer to Fishguard. The thing that has confused me is the welsh for wolfscastle is 'altraafon' (SP!) so it is not the same as the welsh village were the last wolf was allegedly shot

Sorry but what a silly idea,just gives the Gamekeepers something else to shoot,apart from foxes, buzzards,wildcats,red kites,and deer. Wolves wouldnt last 10 years unless they were in enclosures. ;)

mmm...I disagree Dr Grumpy - I watched the documentary about this and felt that it was a good idea. People often have a completely wrong view of wolves and why would gamekeepers want to shoot them? It says that no-one was going to be allowed into the estate so it's not as if they were being kept to be killed unlike grouse for example

Gamekeepers,or a least some of them,shoot almost anything that isn't game,including cats,crows,buzzards,kites,foxes,wildcats,jays,pigeons,hooded crows,magpies,stoats,weasels,mink,and wolves would make a change...all creatures that pose a threat to pheasants,their eggs or food source is killed...wolves would just be another casualty.
If in this case the release site was enclosed there would be no problem... :)

Ever notice how deerhounds, when they prick their ears, look like wolves? Or werewolves even moreso? That's how I describe deerhounds to people when they ask what my dogs resemble. I say werewolves and they seem quite satisfied, as though it's a natural thing to own a pack of werewolves! :blink:

Seems we're very conflicted about the place of wolves in our world. They're always relocating wolf packs from this place to that in North America, trying to get them reestablished here or thinned out there. Then there are the culls in the north, where wolves are shot from airplanes because they're eating too many cariboo. That creates a lot of upset. And there's the usual complaint that ranchers hate them because they kill cattle. That is unless it's my own dad who has wolves passing through his ranch and no problems at all with them hunting his cattle. He told me about a magnificent lone black wolf he saw last year emerging from the trees above the house. Gorgeous.

Here's a closeup I took of Anna a couple of weeks ago, that has something of the wolf in it I think - if only she didn't look so tired from caring for her pups.

I've read the article, thanks for that Joerg, and it seems that its the ramblers association that are raising the most objections. I have great sympathy with people wanting walking access to the countryside however sometimes they can be a real pain in the ars*

I think it's a terrible reflection on modern society when objections are raised to re-introducing animals that we have killed off that were here long before humans. If some people had there way there would be no species in this country other than humans. It makes me really mad that even on a private estate people try to stop Wolves being introduced. I remember another try at introducing Wolves on an un-inhabitated Island 10 miles from the coast that was stopped in case they swam to the shore.

Throw them all these objectors to the Wolves I say.

:angry:

I agree, Ben often has a wolf-like look to me and several people have also commented "What a nice Wolf" or "I thought that was a Wolf coming through the trees"

Lots of people have told me that Murray looks like a wolf. I was taking them for a walk one day and there were kids throwing stones - I asked them to stop and got a lot of verbal from them. One of the kids asked 'what was the big dog' so I told him that Murray was a wolf and he ran off crying :blush:

I've found a reference to the place on Google, it's at Mainstone near Bishops castle in South Shropshire. it's about a 45 mile drive via slow countty roads so is aboutan hour and a quarter from me. Looks very interesting, will have to research further. Thanks for posting the info Trisha.
