Wolf hunt stopped in Skåne
A planned hunt for a wolf which allegedly killed 24 sheep in southern Sweden over the summer has been stopped by a court in Stockholm.
The decision was based on an injunction taken by the anti-wolf hunt group, Nordulv, which argued that there was insufficient evidence that the wolf was responsible for killing all the sheep.
The Swedish Environmental Protection agency has given the go-ahead for the hunt which was to start on Wednesday.
The agency has been given until 30 August to appeal the decision of the administrative court.
