ON THE WOLVES TRAIL IN MORTEFONTAINE
The Mortefontaine test center served as the setting for a teaser for a film project ‘La piste des loups’ (The Wolf’s Trail) produced by Vincenzo Comis, trainer and pilot instructor at UTAC CERAM, aimed at promoting the return of the wild wolf to Europe. Wild wolves in large parts of Europe were the subject of methodical hunting, until its near total eradication in certain countries such as France, by the beginning of the 20th century.
This film invites us to better know and understand this fascinating species by following the lives of two wolves (equipped with radio collars) through all the reliefs of Western Europe. The objective of this epic film, which will take place from April 2021 to October 2022, is multiple: to confront the points of view of the different protagonists for and against the wild animals, to try to change mentalities and to offer viable answers to the problems posed by the return of this super predator.
