EPA drops appeal against wolf hunt
The winter wolf hunt is called off again, and this time it's final. Today the Environmental Protection Agency dropped its court appeal against the ruling to stop this winter's wolf hunt.
Last week the Administrative Court decided that the wolf hunt in areas including Dalarna should be stopped, after complaints form environmental groups. The national Environmental Protection Agency then appealed the court's decision saying that they wanted the case to be "properly proven in court".
This means that the 30 wolves that would have been culled in February, to lower Sweden's wolf population of approximately 400 wolves, will not be shot.
The EPA has decided to instead focus its energy on next year's hunting season, Swedish Radio News reports.
