Wolf hunting Sweden

Sweden is pressing ahead with a cull of its wolf population despite protests by conservationists and the EU. Hunters have been given two weeks to kill 16 wolves.

wolfHunters and wolves often seek out their prey in the same areas. Wolves can kill the hunt dogs, and that possible prize elk. In short, hunters do not like wolves.

There are at least 270 wolves in Sweden at the moment. This year’s hunt has enraged conservationists, and the European Union, but delighted many farmers. The European Union has cried foul and is threatening legal action.
