A NEW PACK OF WOLVES

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Great Escape Czech Republic -

Once a com­mon sight in this park, Šu­mava’s wolves had been en­tirely wiped out by the end of the 20th cen­tur y. To­day, the park is on a mis­sion to rein­tro­duce them to the wild; in re­cent years, a pair has been suc­cess­fully breed­ing in a new, pur­pose -built for­est en­clo­sure at Srní. An el­e­vated wooden walk­way wind­ing through the trees of the en­clo­sure af­fords vis­i­tors a good chance of see­ing these mag­nif­i­cent preda­tors up close (npsumava.cz).
