Wolves in the Netherlands

I am pretty sure that some Turks in the Netherlands are delighted by the following news and I hoop they don't get strange ideas by it:

The Netherlands has come within range of wolves. According to the Dutch Mammal Society, a number of wolf packs in the German federal state of Hessen are now just 200 kilometers away from the Dutch border. As young wolves can roam up to 50 kilometres per day, it is possible that some of them are straying onto Dutch territory. The society suspects the wolves could be attracted by the abundant wildlife in the De Veluwe nature preserve. Wolves were last seen living in the wild in the Netherlands at the end of the 19th century.
