Court agrees wolf hunts in Norway were invalid

From in Norway:

WWF won a long-sought victory this week when an appeals court ruled that two out of three wolf hunts authorized by state officials in 2017 and 2018 were invalid. The hunts involved wolves belonging to managed and protected packs, while a third hunt won court approval.

The hunt allowed in the winter of 2017-2018, when snow makes it easiest to track wolves down, locally authorized the shooting of 50 wolves. Government officials pared that down to 42. A total of 28 wolves were actually shot, with WWF arguing that the number authorized was far too high and that the hunt threatened survival of the species.
