  1. Hmm, an apex predator re-establishing itself.

    I do hope steps have been taken to ensure the security of bacon supplies.

  2. There are idiots who want the bloody things reintroduced here.

    First the beaver. Next it’ll be the lynx. And then the big, bad wolf.

    I wonder whether there’s any chance of introducing the North American bison? Fine animals, those. Or genetically modified giraffes?

  3. We could do with a lynx or two to cull the muntjacs, which are thriving well where I live. I have a camera pointed at the lawn with an IR floodlight, and I see a muntjac crossing through most nights.

    Quit making up words, Tractor Gent.
    Who ever heard of a “camera”?

    Spoken by a man who has never smelled them. Trust me, you don’t want them around.

  6. ‘Exterminated by hunters, wolves had been completely extinct in Denmark since the beginning of the nineteenth century.’

    But we are so much smarter now.

    Well I certainly do. Although there is no really a patch of land large enough for a proper pack to survive. There is, or was, a pack of wolves being kept in Scotland.

    “First the beaver. Next it’ll be the lynx. And then the big, bad wolf.”

    Then the bear.

    We have European bison in Germany. Why introduce a New World interloper? I would love to see bison roaming the New Forest. Spain has introduced two small herds. So why not?

    And if we are going to go down the genetic modification route – which is a waste of time – why not the Mammoth?
