Wolf hunt starts in Sweden despite protests

From The Local in Sweden:

The wolf hunt is set to go ahead in Sweden today, after a court decided not to call off the cull.

Campaigners had appealed to the highest administrative court in Sweden less than a week before the start of the hunt. The Supreme Administrative Court has not yet decided whether or not to grant them leave to appeal, but said it would not call off the hunt at the eleventh hour in the meantime.

Twenty-two wolves are to be culled in the licensed hunt, which takes place in five counties between January 2nd and February 15th, with a limit on the number which may be killed in each county.
