Laetitia, Alone Among the Wolves - Laetitia Becker is studying for a PhD in biology from the Université Louis-Pasteur in Strasbourg. But she is not studying in Strasbourg. Rather, she is studying wolves at the Chisty Les (Russian for "clean forest") Biological Station 450 kilometres northwest of Moscow. In the forest she has an enclosure with four wolves, which she observes from a vantage point in a tall tree. The wolves came as cubs from St Petersburg Zoo, and Laetitia is working out the best way to rear them in captivity without making them dependent on man. The goal is to return them to the wild and restore their place in the balance of nature. (Part 2 of 2) (From France, in French & Russian) (French & Russian Culture) (Documentary) G CC
