County says no to new wolf hunt

County authorites in southern Sweden have turned down a request by the Swedish Farmers Federation (LRF) for a licensed wolf hunt.

The LRF had requested permission for a wolf hunt after some 30 sheep were destroyed by wolves in the province of Skåne since the start of the year.

A final decision about the requested hunt will be made by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, but the position of the County Administrative Board will weigh heavily.
