For more than 100 years there have not been wolves in the Netherlands. But on Tuesday a creature, which reminded suspiciously of a wolf, turned up north in the Netherlands.
Eddy van der Molen filmed the animal, which ran along and across the railway. At one point it ran past a very surprised cyclist.
On Wednesday wolf expert Leo Linnartz from the organization "Wolves in the Netherlands" confirmed that it actually is a wolf. Presumably it is a young wolf looking for its own territory. According to Linnartz, the wolf most likely came from Germany, where wild wolves live around 200 km from the Dutch border.
The latest registration of a wolf on Dutch soil was in 1897.
In 2014, a dead wolf was found in Luttelgeest. But it turned out that the wolf was shot in Eastern Europe, before it was dumped in the Netherlands.
