STOCKHOLM / TT
This year’s controlled hunting of wolves in Sweden must not be a fancy hunting license. We will not hesitate to pursue the matter to the European Court if Sweden does not comply with EU rules. This the EU’s Environment Commissioner Janez Potocnik makes clear in an interview with TT.
“A protective hunt must comply with EU legislation and must not become a disguised right to kill. Killing problem wolves is possible only if there are no other solutions”, he says.
