Finland approves wolf hunt in trial cull

Authorized hunt of nearly 50 of the country’s 250 grey wolves, beginning this weekend, aims to curb illegal poaching…which some rural landowners have resorted to in recent years after seeing wolves on their property, sometimes killing their dogs and livestock…Environmentalists worry the month-long cull may destroy the wolves’ genetic diversity.
