Episode 35

In contrast to the believe that only lowland and city people welcome the wolf, a poll in the Calanda region showed that 70% of the people around the wolf territory supported the return of the wolf. Local support forms the basis for a sustainable coexistence between people and wildlife.

A surprising majority shows tolerance and support for the wild canids, as I found out while talking to many locals.
