Last attempt to capture and move "Junsele wolf"

The controversial "Junsele wolf" will be moved a fourth time, says the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.

This is the wolf's last chance, says Ruona Burman, game coordinator for the Agency. The wolf is seen as genetically valuable for the inbred Swedish wolf population, but reindeer herders have complained in the past that the wolf keeps returning to worry their herds, and they have applied for permission to shoot it.
