Make way! Wolves are moving back into Paris, France!
Yes, everyone knows that if they go to Paris, France, they’ll be able to see the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre, the Notre-Dame Cathedral or the Arc de Triomphe…but what about wolves? Who ever heard of wolves in Paris? Well, they’re moving in!
A couple of wolf-watching groups claim that wolves are moving into the area around Paris! A total of three wolves have been spotted in the area – one appears to be a couple, and another appears to be a lone wolf. Parisians, researchers say, have nothing to worry about because the wolves aren’t huge and vicious – they’re just a small type of Italian wolf that only weighs about 55 pounds and is unlikely to attack people. Good news for Parisians!
The unusual thing about these particular wolf sightings is that in the 1930s wolves were all but wiped out in France. In recent years, they have made a slight resurgence, although most of the wolves stay in the country’s mountainous area, and are not seen by city-dwellers. To therefore find wolves in and around Paris – and seemingly unafraid of urban areas – is unusual and unsettling.
So keep that camera handy on your next trip to Paris – you never know what wildlife you may encounter! 😉
