The attention of our Society was called to the proposal to issue hunting licenses of wolf killing in Sweden.
The Wolf Association Sweden started a petition to protest against the proposal which is also against the EU directives. Here comes a short quote from the Association:
Wolf Association Sweden (WAS) is dismayed about how the Swedish EPA completely neglect decisions taken by EU and now make the decision to have a licensed hunting season. Even though it´s against what EU´s environmentally Commission has imposed Sweden to do.
It has been decided that the licensed hunting season will begin January 2 and continue until February 15, 2015. The wolf quota will be decided regionally by the prefectures.
