They know the vehicle and they know their shepherd, that&rsquo;s why they are not raising the alarm. As we get out and walk towards the herd, they wag their tails and stay relaxed.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-emvideo field-field-embed-video"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="emvideo emvideo-video emvideo-youtube"><div id="media-youtube-1" class="media-youtube"> <div id="media-youtube-default-external-1"> <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="292" width="460" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/c1B5CIqnLf8&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" id="media-youtube-default-external-object-1"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/c1B5CIqnLf8&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" /> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/> <param name="quality" value="best"/> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/> <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF"/> <param name="scale" value="noScale"/> <param name="salign" value="TL"/> <param name="FlashVars" value="playerMode=embedded" /> <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> <!-- Fallback content --> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1B5CIqnLf8"><img src="http://d2mlnkprj9wd81.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/emvideo-youtube-c1B5CIqnLf8_0.jpg" alt="See video" title="See video" width="460" height="292" /></a> </object> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ifaw.org/united-kingdom/news/dogs-sheep%E2%80%99s-clothing" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wolves Wolves Video Fri, 06 Mar 2015 21:59:13 +0000 jhart@ifaw.org 103169 at http://www.ifaw.org Successful protection of wolves in Germany and Poland also helps the Netherlands http://www.ifaw.org/united-kingdom/news/successful-protection-wolves-germany-and-poland-also-helps-netherlands <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/united-kingdom/about-us/wildlife-trade/robert-kless">Robert Kless</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 01/07/2015</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p><img alt="The development of the Central European Wolf population is encouragingly good." class="caption" longdesc="The development of the Central European Wolf population is encouragingly good." src="http://d2mlnkprj9wd81.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/Erfolge-des-Wolfes_Jan-2015_0.jpg" style="width: 630px; height: 420px;" title="The development of the Central European Wolf population is encouragingly good." />I am gazing over the wide flat landscape &ndash; over plenty of water and low woods.
