Incredible footage just broadcast in the Italian media reveals that the celebrity wolves Slavc and Juliet have just had a litter of seven cubs.
On 1 March 2012, a camera trap set by a hunter in a remote valley in the Dolomites in Italy captured footage of a wolf.

Rather wonderfully, Slavc and the female did meet up in the Lessinia Natural Regional Park just north of Verona (hence Juliet). They bred at the first available opportunity, producing two cubs in 2013 as revealed by this camera trap footage.
