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 — via redwolf.newsvine.com
