Plans To Reintroduce Wolves To Caledon And Benburb

By Landan Seamy

Benburb in 2016?

Benburb in 2016?

Imagine the thrill of lying in bed on a windswept December night listening to the hair raising howls from the moors as the wolves hunt their next victim. If local conservationist Pat “the wild man” Devlin and his 11 friends have their way this is what the future could hold for parts of Tyrone.

Pat and his team say plans to bring wolves back to Caledon and Benburb are “at an advanced stage”.

 

 

“People claim that we have not thought this through”

explained Pat,

“but we have watched all the Jurassic Park films and know how things could go wrong so to be on the safe side we have chosen 2 areas with sparse populations and with absolutely no players on the Tyrone county squad. Both places are practically in Armagh anyway so I don’t see what all the fuss is about”.

Pat is convinced that there’ll be no disaster anyway.

“Whilst the cynics just see problems I just see benefits for the local economy. Just think of the euros and dollars pouring in. If some of that money crosses the border to Armagh then good luck to them. People have asked me if I’ll be introducing lions and tigers next. That’s just pure ignorance. Those animals never lived in Ireland. The gist of my plan is to return, to their natural habitats, the animals dispossessed by Cromwell”.

Pat has met with some opposition from local farmers and mothers with young children.

“I can understand their concerns” he sympathises “but they’ll just have to get on with it”.

People say he’s crazy” added Sean who like some of the other 11 is actually one of Pat’s sons.

“But when has a madman ever influenced 11 others. As my father keeps reminding us 12 is a respectable number. Jesus had 12 disciples; Jacob had 12 sons; Christmas has 12 days and the 12th is one of the biggest days in the northern calendar”.

And on that last fact” interrupted Pat,

“if our fellow county men don’t stop moaning I’ll take the idea to Paisley’s country. It’d actually save us all a lot of time for once we rescue the wolves from the zoo we’d practically be in Antrim already”.

When pressed to state when exactly the wolves are to be “returned” Pat smiled and tapped his nose before saying “plans are an at an advanced stage but if I gave you an exact date the big noises in the zoo in Belfast would probably try and stop us“.
