    • Connie, on the TV program “America Unearthed,” which was about ancient Minoan copper mines – there was a discussion of the fact that wolves fall into the copper mines and die. It could be clearly seen that there were fences made of poles around the mine openings, which go straight down into the ground, that were presumably put there to warn people. So, whoever put these fences there could also take the trouble to make some wolf-proof fences to keep the wolves from falling in.

Whoever wants to re-introduce them needs to build wolf-proof barriers around the ancient mines first. Thanks, Connie!
