Demonstrators call for Iberian wolf protection
19 March 2018 @ 00:14

THOUSANDS of demonstrators gathered in Madrid today (Sunday) calling for laws to protect the Iberian wolf, an endangered species unique to Spain and Portugal.

Ecologists in Action, the WWF, European Alliance for Wolf Conservation and the group Lobo Marley ('Marley the Wolf') were behind the march, which was headed up by Rocco, a domesticated wolf walking on a lead, complete with his 'entourage' of another seven dogs who are part-wolf.

Around 3,000 people clamoured for the Iberian wolf to be included in Spain's list of specially-protected species throughout the whole of the country.

They marched from Atocha station to the central Puerta del Sol square.

Wildlife experts have shown that wolves, in the wild, do not need to be a threat to sheep, meaning they have no need to be shot by farmers if they take the right measures.
