Wolf hunt over - for now

This year's wolf hunt in Sweden has come to an end - at least for now. On Sunday, the 45th wolf was killed just after 3pm in Örebro.

Hunters in Dalarna, Värmland and Örebro had been permitted to kill a total of 44 wolves, but one wolf was put to sleep in Örebro because it had scabies, and that did not count towards the quota, according to news agency TT.

Next week, the county administrative board in Dalarna may give hunters permission to shoot more wolves there.

There has been opposition to the wolf hunt, and the EU has criticized the Swedish stance on hunting within certain territories.
