SE: No wolf hunt in winter

Roughly translated by TWIN Observer

There will be no wolf hunt in winter. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency considers that the Swedish wolf population is too small for it.

The Swedish wolf strain has become smaller and the space for licensing hunting is non-existent, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency writes in a press release. Because of that, it will not be up to county administrative boards to decide on license hunting on wolves.

According to the latest predator survey in the past winter, there were about 305 wolves in Sweden and the lower limit of what is considered to be a favorable conservation status is 300. In the case of a controlled protective hunt, it is still the county administrative boards that make the decisions.
