Wolf Numbers Unchanged Despite Hunt

Published måndag 14 juni 2010 kl 17.25
A wolf killed in the winter hunt

The Swedish wolf population has not decreased in number, despite this winter's controversial wolf hunt, a new research report reveals. A careful count puts the number of wolves in Sweden at between 172 and 208, a number virtually unchanged from the previous winter.

The wolves' numbers would have probably increased if the hunt had not taken place, but it seems as if births have cancelled out the deaths. In that sense, the hunt achieved its purpose, which was to keep wolves to their current level.

A total of 28 wolves were killed last winter in Sweden's the first authorized wolf hunt since the 1960s.
