The Supreme Administrative Court has decided to look into whether wolf hunt opponents can appeal against the controversial hunts to a court.

The decision to carry out a licensed wolf hunt is taken by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. Its decision cannot be appealed to a court, according to Sweden's hunting legislation.

However, a lower court found that the appeals ban could break European law. The administrative court, the highest court in the land, now wants to test if that is in fact the case.

The ongoing wolf hunts will not be halted while the court deals with the matter.
