Alpha male shot as wolves set up territory west of Helsinki

From in Finland:

An unusual number of wolf sightings have been reported of late in western Uusimaa, mostly in an area some 80 km west of Helsinki. The Finnish Wildlife Agency says a wolf pack has set up a new territory there.

This autumn it granted an exceptional license to shoot one young male near the western Uusimaa coast. However the male wolf that was shot was an adult. It was shot in southern Karjaa on October 27, just before the license expired.
