"The wolves are very important from an ecological point of view," says Juan Carlos Blanco, an independent biologist and wolf expert. He points out that they keep in check wild ungulates, such as roe deer, red deer and wild boar, which can damage crops, cause road accidents and spread diseases among livestock.

"The wolf is at the top of the chain and it's very important when it comes to regulating the natural systems," he says.

'Hippy conservationists and mummy's boys'
While Mr Blanco welcomes the proposed hunting ban, he says this has become a social issue, pitting the negative vision of the wolf held by many rural communities against a more positive view among city dwellers.

The Asaja farmers' association reflected this schism when it attacked the government's reform on the grounds that it was pandering to "a legion of hippy conservationists and mummy's boys who only go to the countryside at the weekend and normally only to cause problems for the local people".

Mr Blanco says the central government will now need to negotiate with livestock owners and the local authorities in the north west who are unhappy with the plan, in order to ensure its success. pg

"In Spanish we say that a bad agreement is better than a good fight," he says. "And I think that should be applied to the wolf conflict."
