Die Rückkehr der Wölfe

The wolf polarizes and fascinates, and it brings disorder to our system. 150 years after the wolf was wiped out in Central Europe, it is inexorably regaining its place.

Are wolves dangerous for humans; is it possible to live together?

The wolf divides opinions and its return revives man's rejection. Starting from the return of the wolves to Switzerland, we set off on a search for clues to Austria, Lusatia, Poland, Bulgaria and Minnesota, where wild wolf packs are not uncommon.
