The European Commission has decided to take legal action against Sweden, after authorities there ordered the killing of 20 wolves earlier this month.

The campaign is over now but since the hunt began, 7657 people from over 50 countries have signed a petition protesting against the Swedish licensed hunting of wolves by signing a petition addressed to the EU environment commissioner. -- article  -- original source

The European Commission on Thursday formally reported Sweden’s wolf hunt for violating European Union environmental laws.

At the same time, Swedish environment minister Andreas Carlgren unveiled plans for strengthening the Swedish wolf pack by introducing new wolves.

According to Carlgren, decisions to add new wolves will be taken locally. He added that Sweden also plans to continue with a licenced wolf hunt.

Sweden plans to introduce new wolf pups to the country’s existing wolf population starting in April.Watching from the sidelines

Practically speaking, the move means the EU now sends a formal notification which Sweden must answer within two months.

If the answers aren’t satisfactory, the matter proceeds further and could eventually end up in court.

Carlgren remained confident that Sweden would prevail in the dispute.
Sweden resumed wolf hunting last year when it set a quota of 28 wolves. It was the first wolf hunt since 1964.

Should the case reach the European Court of Justice, Sweden could be slapped with hefty fines for violating EU rules.

update: 

There will be NO RELEASE OF WOLF PUPS from a zoo in years according to the zoo's own experts.  They believe that the government acted "brainless" when it said that the wolf pups may be released as early as spring.  article   translated to English   

"That there is such a rush is a political issue and I believe and others that it is unfortunate. I do not think it serves the wolves in the long term if it is hurried." - article  translated to English
