Indeed, though after some thinking I think that it might not be so good for the UK after all, I mean sure it would be great seeing them and people to learn more about them but they haven't been in the UK for Hundreds of years and |I think that it might cause the food chain and wildlife to become badly effected by it since they are so use to where they live without wolves being there.

Well if you think about it. basicly the top of the wood chain is a fox and Followed my Falcons. But it could affect the food chain, I think people couldnt really think how it would affect animals in that food chain. You know Wolves are being released into different parts of America which they havent come from and they are doing fine.

Indeed, though remember wolves aven't been in the UK for hundreds of years, imagine what kind of effect it will have an the wildlife considering they haven't been there in ages. Wolves were hunted to an extinction in the Middle Ages. The ecosystem has survived for centuries without great predators like wolves... it would cause some disruption in the ecosystem. But the deer population, as an example, in the Scotland the numbers of them have gone through the roof without the presence of predators that would reduce the deer population.

We all understand that Wolves have not been in Britain for Hundreds of Years, but as soon as the Wolves were all hunted to extinction in the British Isles, the Red Deer took over and are now pushing animals like the 'Capercallie' to death in Scotland. So the reintroduction of Wolves will not affect anything in a bad way. Wolves are not going to stop anything from living, because there is nothting to kill and eat the Red Deer apart from us. And because Red Deer are protected in some areas, we cannot hunt them completely. But Wolves don't have laws, so Wolves would readress the natural balance between Prey and Predetor.
