Hi Lisa,

That sounds like great news, apart from the fact that I can't find anything about it on any of the Catalan environment sites; either it's too soon to say or too good to be true. Cry

Cynically sorry Simon

Or completely made up or someone's let the wolf cat out of the bag too soon. I don't know if there's any news on the subspecies status of signatus, but it seems like a strange idea to me. More like uncoordinated and unjoined up thinking.

This is the nearest I've got so far (from October 2008):

Hi Guys and Gals,

Now I'm getting really confused. An article in Avui refers to the meeting last week, but the subject appears to be entirely about the bears, plus the fact that AVALON?s blog doesn't have a metion of wolves in its recent news roll. noidea

So it seems the journalist got it wrong. He meant bears. Frankly, I don't think they need to reintroduce wolves. If allowed they'll get here of their own accord.

That's right. Has there been any more news about the one that arrived from Italy a few years ago?

Hi Simon, just to set the record straight on this one (I think you are referring to the the famous Cadi wolf)

It did not arrive from Italy but DNA tests have shown that it is genetically Italian in origin, forming part of an expansion over a number generations out from the Apennines. The Apennine population began to expand in several directions from the early 1990's. It moved north into the Italian and Swiss Alps; north-east into the French Alps and Lyon, and east towards the Pyrenees, reaching the Maritime Alps near Nice by 1996, Saboya by 1998. An individual was detected between Areja and French Cerdenya by August 1998 in the Madres Massif, just to the north of Canigó, and finally by 2004 into the Cadí range.

The Cadi wolf paired up with a female dog which was shot by wardens to prevent hybrids being born. As far as I know it is currently alone. There may be as many as four lone wolves, all male, in the Catalan Pyrenees which have made their way from French Cerdanya. However, there are grounds for some pessimism as the French population is under serious pressure from hunting and so individuals are only arriving in dribs and drabs.

Note: The last Catalan wolf was shot in Terra Alta in the south of the Principality in 1929 (1935?), though the animal is thought to have disappeared from the Sierra de Cadí more than 100 years ago.

Hi Joerg, welcome  sign

Did you see Nick's previous post?

There may be as many as four lone wolves, all male, in the Catalan Pyrenees which have made their way from French Cerdanya. However, there are grounds for some pessimism as the French population is under serious pressure from hunting and so individuals are only arriving in dribs and drabs.

Note: The last Catalan wolf was shot in Terra Alta in the south of the Principality in 1929 (1935?), though the animal is thought to have disappeared from the Sierra de Cadí more than 100 years ago.

Hi Joerg,

Welcome to the Forum.

There is a campaign to help save the wolf population here in Catalonia. Furthermore, it has details in German!

Looking forward to hearing more from you on this topic sign - most of us are British and envy the fauna of your homeland!

Regards

Some recent news about Catalan wolves in El Punt, including a photo, shot in the Parc Natural del Cadí-Moixeró.  11 have been seen there since 2003, including one female.

The director of the park wants to follow the example of the Sierra de Culebra and use the wolf as a way of attracting tourists, and there's talk of re-introductions.  The livestock owners have misgivings.

The area has a large population of chamois and deer though, as alternative prey.
