No stable population though. It doesn't count if a wolf runs through the corn field once on its way to Romania.

If a country has wolves it doesn't mean they are all over the country. And Romania and Ukraine are not that small.

No, actually the Vatican has one of the densest wolf populations in the world, with some 3 million wolves in less than half a square kilometer. I was surprised when I saw the Vatican on this list, I thought it was common knowledge.

Really? This surprises me a lot. Bahrain and Brunei and the Maldives and Solomon Islands all have wolf populations? How does Bahrain have wolves? Its basically a tiny desert island turned city. Wolves are more widespread than I thought. This is just really surprising I suppose

Yeah, I was surprised about Austria. Since it's neighbors all have wolves (except Liechtenstein) and it's such a mountaineous country, it seems like there should be room for a few.

Are they really sure that the German, Swiss, Italian, Croatian, Slovene, Hungarian, Slovak, and Czech wolves never wander in to Austria? That seems odd. Do European wolves not like to go for walks much?

But Austria is on the list, so you are including it despite the sightings. I think you worded that caveat wrong.

I guess you can argue about when exactly there's a 'stable population' but indeed, as this BBC article can tell, wolves don't just walk back to Germany anymore: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-47838162
