Limburg wolf Noëlla has given birth to four cubs

It has been confirmed that the Limburg wolves Noëlla and August are now the proud parents of four cubs. The news was made public on the social media platform Twitter by the Flemish Environment Minister Zuhal Demir (nationalist). The four cubs have been filmed by a camera set up in woodland near to their den.

A delighted Ms Demir wrote “This is a historic moment for nature conservation in Flanders. For the first time in 150 years a wolf has given birth to cubs in our country”.

The Flemish Nature and Woodland Agency says that the cubs and their parents are in good health and that the cubs are now venturing short distances away from their den.

The agency stresses the importance of the animals being left to go about their business in peace.

The agency’s foresters and inspectors are on high alert to ensure that no one disturbs the wolves.
