*Staff Note* – After examination of the photograph of “New Wolves in Switzerland” provided with the article linked-to below, Wolf Education International (WEI) wolf experts express sincere doubts that any of the canines shown in the photograph are actual wolves.

One grey wolf expert was quoted as saying, “These guys are almost pure dogs, rather German Shepherds than wolves. Wolves do not exhibit this kind of color variations during their first year. Wolves’ first pelt is relatively monotone. When they shed their first winter pelt, the wolfish color settings become more expressed.”
