A noticeable return
“The wolf was moving across the plain. He didn’t seem very wild, ”said the chosen one, referring to the absence of a wolf for a century. He also estimated that the presence of these canids had been more frequent on French territory for some time.
The photo of the wolf passing through Pévy was sent to the French Office for Biodiversity. It was these experts who determined which animal it was, confirming the impressions of the witnesses. Local farmers have been notified.
