Cubs of a native Italian species of wolf have been spotted near Rome for the first time in over 100 years, as captured by a hidden camera set at Oasi Lipu, an animal sanctuary located west of the city. The video shows a young wolf wandering close to the camera before scampering away. A spokesperson from Oasi Lipu told The Local that adult wolves were first spotted in 2013, but that this was the first time they saw cubs. According to Radio Colonna, at least two wolf puppies were born in the sanctuary in 2017. Only about 100 wolves were known to live in Italy in the 1970s, according to reports, but the species was given protected status and the population has gradually recovered.
