How many wolves are there in the UK?
Wild wolves? Zero. Captive wolves? Around 100, most of which are held in zoos. There are also around two dozen wolves kept privately under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act licensing scheme. There's an old - but still interesting - report on keeping wolves privately in the UK available from DEFRA's website: http://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-countryside/gwd/wolfdogs/wolfdogs.pdf answer there are no wild wolves left in the UK. they died out many years ago of poaching and habitat destruction, although they can still be found in nature parks, zoos, reserves and some special organisiations such as the UK wolf conservation trust.
Asked in Wales
Do wolves live in Wales?
Not in the wild, only in zoos or safari parks. Wolves were exterminated throughout the UK, including Wales, at the end of the 17th Century under the rule of Queen Anne. However, feral dogs and wolf-dog hybrids continued to live in the wild in North Wales for some time later than this. Feral dogs have always been a feature of Wales, and within the last few years, there has been an attempt to re-introduce wolves to the wild in Wales, supported by the World Wildlife Trust and the Welsh Assembly. It's not yet known how successful this may be.
