Wolf cubs born to the wolves known to have settled in the Veluwe region of the Netherlands in April have been caught on film for the first time.
The cubs – at least three – were filmed by a special camera set up in the hope of recording activity around the wolf family – the first to breed in the Netherlands in 200 years.
The location is being kept secret to protect the young family from sightseers, Gelderland province, which is monitoring the family, said.

Wolves have been spotted in the Netherlands on and off since 2015. Gelderland province has set up a special committee involving farmers, rangers and wildlife experts to protect sheep and goats against the arrival of the predator.
