European Wolf Cubs Settle Down in Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands are home to some fascinating wildlife as well as breathtaking scenery. Many people from all around the world travel to the Highlands just to marvel at its beauty. It is certainly alocationfor nature- and animal-lovers – flora and fauna at its very best.

Full Pack of Wolf Cubs

However, the Scottish Highlands is now home to six wolf pups named Fearn, Rose, Simon, Darach, Cora and Eadha. Theseenergeticpups recently celebrated their four-month birthday at the RZSS Highland Wildlife Park and just happen to be the first pack of European wolf cubs to roam in Scotland for over twelve years. The pups are already half the size of a full-grown wolf, but they still have a lot more growing to do.

The head of living collections at RSZZ Highland Wildlife Park, Douglas Richardson, said, “It is wonderful to have a full pack of wolves at the park again. They are quite boisterous and love exploring their 4,500-square metre enclosure.”

The European wolf used to be extremely common,but it is now an endangered species only found in the wild in western Russia, Eastern Europe, and Scandinavia. These wolves were once common in Scotland but were hunted to extinction on the orders of Queen Mary in the 1700s.
