Czech Republic: Scientists in Šumava monitor wild wolf using telemetric collar

From Radio Prague International:

Scientists in the Šumava national park have started monitoring a wild wolf using a special telemetric collar. The project, the first of its kind in the Czech Republic, is being conducted in cooperation with experts from the Czech University of Life Sciences in order to better understand the wolves’ movement patterns and behaviour.

Wolves were once common throughout most of Bohemia and Moravia but by the late 19th century, they were completely eradicated. The last wolf is believed to have been shot in the Šumava Mountains in 1874.
