nsnbc : `Welcome Wolf´, an organization eager to see wild wolves return to Belgium, reports that it has spotted a first wolf in the wild in Flanders. The animal was sighted in Bocholt in Belgium’s Limburg province.

The wolf was monitored crossing the Belgian-Dutch border. Earlier it crossed into the Netherlands from northern Germany and made its way south to Limburg. In Belgium the animal was detected in the marshes of the Kempen District.

Until recently the wolf was in danger of extinction but numbers are now increasing apace. Several animals have been reported in Germany and the North of the Netherlands in recent years.
