Large fenced reserves could reintroduce wolves in Scottish Highlands

From GovernmentEuropa.eu:

New research by a team from the University of Sussex and the University of Kent shows that the use of large fenced reserves could reintroduce wolves in the Scottish Highlands.

Currently, the large population of red deer in parts of Scotland is causing over-grazing and preventing the regeneration of nature in certain areas, leaving more than one third of native woodlands in an unfavourable condition. The introduction of large fenced reserves could reintroduce wolves into these areas, which in turn would help to control the population of red deer.
