Episode Information

The wolf was exterminated from most parts of Norway and Sweden around 1870. But now it is back. History is in danger of repeating itself, with fear and anger accompanying the big predator´s presence. But what kind of animal is this controversial creature? Today’s science can reveal the true habits of the wolf packs. It is true wolves do kill livestock and dogs, but can the ecologists pave the way for solutions and co-existence instead of hatred and extermination? We follow Ulrik, an alpha male wolf. Ulrik was one of the first Scandinavian wolves to be tranquilised and equipped with a radio collar. Following his whereabouts has given the scientists a fascinating knowledge of just how dramatic the life of a single wolf can be.
