"Valuable" Junsele wolf cost 7.4 million
The government spent SEK 7.4 million to keep the so-called Junsele wolf alive this past winter, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Authorities have moved the wolf a number of times. It is seen as genetically valuable for the inbred Swedish wolf population, but reindeer herders up north complain that the wolf kept attacking their herds. Most of the money went to compensation to indigenous sami villages and counties.
