The female wolf that has moved to Södertörn, south of Stockholm since the beginning of summer, may be shot. The county administrative board has decided on a protective cull hunt until 28 February next year, as the wolf has increasingly sought people and densely populated areas.
“The changing behavior of the Wolf, along with the concerns that many people know in the area, mean that we now see no other suitable solution than to decide on a protective hunt,” says Mia Olausson, nature conservation chief at Stockholm County Administrative Board, in a press release.
The wolf, moving in an area of Haninge and Tyresö, has been fitted with radio transmitters and has been described as curious and timid. Previously, attempts have been made to scare it out with, among other things, shot at with rubber balls.
