Sweden wolf hunt suspended after legal challenge

Sweden wolf hunt suspended after legal challenge

A wolf hunt in Sweden that had angered environmentalists has been suspended, just days after it began.

The Swedish government had authorised what it called a targeted cull, saying it would create a healthier wolf population.

But it was suspended pending a full legal review after conservationists appealed to the courts.

Hunters killed three out of the 16 wolves allowed under the quota before the cull was called off.

Analysts say the court ruling is likely to result in no further wolf hunting in Sweden this year.

1. Dear Sweden...

Can we borrow your environmentalists?
