A very special encounter between curious wolves and a visitor in Sweden
Pabasara and the Wolves, a wonderful meeting in Sweden
The Wolves have made a strong comeback in Sweden since they were claimed extinct in the 1960’s.
Today there are more than 400 Wolves in 60 different family groups. Scandinavian Grey Wolves are larger than the Wolves of the same species in Southern Europe. The official counting made during Winter 2014/2015 says that there are approximately 415 Wolves in Sweden and Norway, of which the vast majority are in Sweden.
The number of family groups and couples amounted to 64. The Wolf was claimed to be extinct in Scandinavia in the 1960’s. In the early 1980’s three Wolves migrated from the Russian-Finnish population all the way to the county of Värmland in Southern Sweden close to the Norwegian border.
These Wolves founded the new Wolf population and multiplied successfully into about 200 Wolves before some more Wolves arrived naturally from the Russian-Finnish population in 2008. Today most Wolves live in the Southern parts of Central Sweden.
