Things change very rapidly. Licence was for 9 wolves and in that area they now cilled 15. In another part 9 where licensed was 3. In total sofar 24 wolves are shot. A friend of mine living in Sweden send a lettre hoping they stop the cilling. He speeks Swedisch and works over there in Sweden most of the time protecting wolves

10,000 hunters against them.Broken Heart  I read the injured wolves may exceed the quotas.Mad

will be waiting to hear that conservationists efforts succeed to present the hunt as a violation of Europen Union legislation on species and habitat.

from this article, the wolf fights politics on all soil:

"He claims that the government wants to attract voters “by allowing the killing” but in actuality it has “fallen victim to the false arguments of the hunter lobby."

and here is an article with details from the BBC

They have killed what could be more than 10% of their struggling wolf population in one day.Protest

No mention has been made about whether or not the 20 wolves Sweden was to implant in the country to reduce inbreeding was done?
