The FT columnist, Simon Kuper, recently announced that Holland was full and that no more economic growth there was even possible.
Dutch provincial authorities have authorised the use of paintballs to scare wolves they say have grown so unafraid of humans that they could become a serious danger.
“We’re dealing with wolves that have become too tame,” a spokesperson for Gelderland province in the eastern Netherlands told the broadcaster Omroep Gelderland. “We have to make them frightened of people again.”
Yes, I’m aware that Netherlands and Holland are not, in fact, the same place. But still, the idea that a place with enough room for wild wolves is full of humanity with no space or any more is a bit odd, no?
