Glances with wolves...

I met a wolf yesterday.

Berkshire is the home of the Wolf Conservation Trust, in Beenham near Reading, and I have always wanted to visit and see the wolves for myself. Founded in 1995, the Trust, through its ambassadorial wolves, supports education, conservation and research. Britain hasn't had wolves for a couple of hundred years - and surprisingly, there are no plans to reintroduce them, because we no longer have enough wild land in the UK. But in Canada, North America, Russia and many large parts of the European mainland, there are many packs of wild wolves doing well!

Scary? Yes, a bit. Because when you meet an ambassador wolf - who has been brought up entirely amongst humans - as I did, you're still very much aware that it's a wild animal. But beautiful too. As wolves should be, I guess!

You can hear what happened when I met the wolves next Thursday morning on BBC Radio Berkshire.
