Norwegian court to rule on six men accused of illegal wolf hunt

Six men charged over hunting some of Norway’s last wolves will learn their fate this week when a court rules on a landmark case that has gripped the country.  Now, for the first time, the authorities have prosecuted an alleged hunting team, charging the six men with environmental offences and organized crime, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 11 years.
