Wolf hunting will continue to be banned in Spain
Wolf hunting will continue to be banned in Spain. On Tuesday parliament rejected an attempt by the Partido Popular to reverse the order from the Ministry of Ecological Transition nine months ago, which made wolves a protected species throughout the Iberian peninsula.
The measure proved divisive and has highlighted conflicting interests over the issue. Farmers and shepherds see wolves as a pest, while naturalists are keen to protect these animals because they are a native species in danger of extinction.
