Danish Wolves Welcome New Pups in Multiple Territories This Year

Observations show that several Danish wolf pairs have had puppies this year, and for the first time, puppies have also been observed in the territories Klosterhede and Ulfborg. According to the Natural History Museum in Aarhus and Aarhus University, who monitor the wolves for the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, at least five out of eight known wolf pairs in Denmark have had puppies this year. This information is available on ulveatlas.dk.

Puppies have been found in five Jutland territories: Klosterhede, Ulfborg, Skjern, Oksbøl, and Hovborg. Observations and recordings from wildlife cameras show that female wolves in early May change their body shape from plump to slim and lactating. These changes are considered evidence that puppies have been born.

So far, puppies have only been directly observed in the Skjern territory. It is the first time that the wolf pairs in Klosterhede and Ulfborg have had puppies, while it is the second time for the pair in Oksbøl. In the Lille Vildmose territory in North Jutland, there are no signs of puppies, and it is still too early to conclude anything for the Lønborg territory in West Jutland and the Nørlund territory in central Midtjylland.

By the end of April, it is estimated that there are between 32 and 42 wolves in Denmark.
