After all the wolfophobia in the media this year it is great to report that the BBC is showing a two-part documentary about the return of wolves to the Cascade Mountains in the North American north-west. Land of the Lost Wolves started last night, and concludes tonight. It is available on iplayer (in the UK at least) until next week (13th April).
Wolves Documentary Description
The programme description is:
At a time when wildlife is disappearing across the planet, one animal is making a comeback – the wolf.
Wolves were wiped out across much of America, with more than a million wolves estimated to have been shot, poisoned or trapped when European settlers arrived.
This enthralling series documents the return of one very special wolf pack to the snowy peaks of Washington’s Cascade Mountains – the first to return to the American Northwest in 70 years.
The Greenygrey thanks the region for returning the wolves to their natural home, the documentary makers for the programme, and the BBC for showing it.
