The Wolf Association of Sweden is dismayed at the Swedish authority's, Naturvådsverket, complete neglect of decisions made by EU, and on their own authority, have decided to license the hunting of wolves. This goes against Europe's more environmental conscious commission has instructed Sweden to do.
 
It has been decided that this licensed hunting will last between 2 January and 15 February 2015 and the decisions on how many wolves to be killed will be made regionally by the prefectures.
 
On September 22, county administrative boards submitted proposals for the minimum levels of wolves allowable to the Environmental Protection Agency. in mid-October, the Authority then determines the final numbers. In late October, the Environmental Protection Agency establishes a final management plan. The authority also allows the hunting of wolves regardless of age and gender unlike before when you were not allowed to hunt young animals.
 
It is believed that people have killed enough wolves in protective hunts already this year that the quota should be deemed amply filled.

We see this as a very serious transgression against what the Environmental Commission has imposed upon Sweden and therefore, view this purely as a provocation.
 
Some county boards by their sole decree and bypassing the application process have allowed interested domestic owners to cull wolves. We cannot interpret this act as anything other than covertly hunting without a license.
 
Therefore, we see no other solution than to petition the EU vigorously to stop this abuse of government law.
