Wolf top dog in BBC Countryfile reintroduction poll

A Highland landowner has a long-term plan to reintroduce wolves to Scotland

Wolves have been leading an online poll of animals people would like to see re-introduced to the British countryside.

European lynx and beavers have been joint second in the survey run by the BBC's Countryfile Magazine. Fewer votes have favoured bears and wild boar

The magazine launched the poll following its interview with Highland landowner Paul Lister.

Mr Lister has a long-term plan to release wolves and bears on his Alladale Estate in Sutherland.

More than 400 votes have been cast so far in the online poll.

Elk and wild boar were introduced on a trial basis to the 23,000-acre Alladale Estate in the past, but Highland cattle are the biggest animals to be found there today.
