The chilling bowl of wolvs raises man's most primitive fears. Once the wolf was the morst wilderly distributed mammal in Europe, but man's hatred of it has led to its destruction in nearly all countries.
However, in the shadows of the rural Spain, the wolf lives on. In remote regions, where there is still space for vultures to fly and find food, wolves may still be found. Every year the villages of Northern Spain, not far from the beaches and sunbathers, shepherds and farmers find hundreds of domestic animals dead on the hillside. They are convinced it is work of wolves. But man's old enemy is making a comeback and it is estimated that there are about 1500 wolves in the hills near Santander and a furious row is raging about their future.
