Wolf Hunt May be Stopped

The controversial wolf-hunt in Sweden will be stopped, unless the introduction of new wolves will be successful, Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren warns Sweden's hunting community.

Some 20 wolves are to be transferred to Sweden over a five year period, as a way to bring in new blood in the Swedish wolf population. Carlgren has requested three relevant authorities to prepare for the move: where the wolves should come from, and - most controversially - where they should go, plus any legal and veterinary aspects of the move.

But several Swedish hunting associations, which earlier this year was allowed to cull 27 wolves, are critical of the planned introduction of new wolves.
