Wolves culled at Scotland's Highland wildlife park

A pack of wolves at Scotland's Highland wildlife park has been culled to make way for a slightly more endangered breed.

It has emerged the animals, which were one of the top attractions at the Highland Wildlife Park near Kingussie, were destroyed by vets and replaced by seven Scandinavian wolves.

It has caused outrage among animal rights groups. Bosses at the park say it was a “difficult decision” to kill the wolves as part of an animal management plan.
