If a perpetrator is found guilty, he or she might face up to 10 years in prison, a spokesperson of the police in Dalarna told Swedish Radio. Sweden’s first official wolf cull in 45 years had started Saturday with almost all of the 27 animals being shot within a couple of hours. Environmental organizations criticized the way the hunt was organized and expressed fears over the cull taking place even before the wolf population has become considerably large.
