Irish wolves

Wolves were once an integral part of the Irish countryside and culture. The last wild wolf in Ireland is said to have been killed in Country Carlow in 1786, 300 years after they were believed to have been wiped out in England and a century after their disappearance in Scotland. The first legislation against Irish wolves dates back to 1584 when John Perrot, the Lord Deputy of Ireland, ordered Robert Legge to come up with a sceme to encourage the destruction of problem wolves.
