Swiss issue another green light to cull troublesome wolf pack


The Swiss authorities have granted a third canton permission to cull a problematic wolf pack responsible for attacks on sheep.

The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) decided on Monday that three young wolves from the Beverin pack in the southeastern canton of Graubünden can be shot but a breeding adult male should be spared. The cantons of Vaud and Valais each got clearance to kill wolves last week.
