Watch video: Are there wild wolves in the UK?

When and why did the wild wolves of the UK disappear?

Might wild wolves be reintroduced in the UK?

In this video, Vicky Allison, Education Officer for a Wolf Conservation Trust, describes the reasons for this extinction. In some parts of the world, re-introducing the wolf back into the wild has had a positive, balancing effect on the eco-system, and in this video, Vicky considers how feasible that would be for the UK.
