From Nature World News:
Authorities in the German state of Bavaria in the southeast have ordered that the pups of a wolf that had mated with a domestic dog be located and killed. The local wolf populations were safeguarded by the shoot-to-kill directive on the pups of the wolf-dog hybrids.
At the northwest corner of Bavaria, in the region of Lower Franconia, authorities recorded the wolf-dog hybrids. German law stipulates that to safeguard the local wolf population, these hybrid animals must be shot.
