"In March, our fotopast wolf caught near the pond Břehyně," says Ladislav Pořízek of the Agency for Nature Conservation and Landscape, head of the PLA Kokorinsko - Macha. The administrative fotopasti then installed in a wider area. In July, government workers have found traces corresponding to an adult wolf and vlčatům. "And at the end of July, one fotopast captured cub or cubs and their parents. Pictured is always only one cub. But in the second half of August one of the foresters observed in other parts of Doksy wolf with a few cubs. The images are clear evidence of breeding wolves in this area. "

"It is almost symbolic that breeding wolves were able to confirm when the territory in which they move came after years of negotiations, part of the protected area. In Macha region are places that have far from Czech primordial wilderness - fens and bogs and waterlogged forests. This can be seen even so, conservationists and wolves agreed that, where nature is really interesting, "said
