17,000 pairs of big eyes. 17,000 pairs of big ears. 17,000 sets of big teeth. With thousands of wolves now roaming continental Europe, Little Red Riding Hood better watch out.
After years of persecution and hunting, the European wolf population is on the rise. Packs have been roaming the Carpathian and Balkan regions, in countries including Slovakia, Poland, Romania, Albania and Serbia, for some years now. Paying little heed to land borders, they are now expanding their territory into countries that haven’t been home to wolves for years.
