Appeals court gives wolf hunts the go-ahead

The administrative court of appeal in Gothenburg has decided to lift a ban on two licenced wolf hunts issued by a lower court in Karlstad.

That means that wolf hunts in Värmland and Örebro counties can go ahead as planned tomorrow. A total of 24 wolves will be killed in Värmland, and 12 in Örebro, news agency TT reports.

The lower court originally ruled that the decision by the Environmental Protection Agency to allow the hunts could flout EU law.
