There have already been signals of a permanent wolf population in the Bükk National Park in Hungary, but the first video of recently born pups has just came out.

The national park administration was running a monitoring programme on wolf for years and they expected the change in the life of the pack. Finally they managed to prove the existence of 5 pups this year through camera trapping.

In order to guarantee protection of the wolves, the national park administration contacted stakeholder especially the representatives of the hunting associations and called their attention to the fact that wolf is a protected species in Hungary. Hopefully the monitoring and research of the wolf population will help to dispel the current negative perceptions of wolf (more inforomation about the wolf pack and the news is available on the website of Bükk National Park in Hungarian)
