In a number of areas of Central, Northern and Western Kazakhstan, restrictions on the shooting of wolves are coming into force, the chairman of the Committee of Forestry and Wildlife of the Ministry of Agriculture of the country, Kairat Ustemirov, said.

A two-year moratorium on the shooting of ‘forest orderlies’ in the steppe is being established on the territory of Akmola, Aktobe, Kostanay and Karaganda regions due to a strong reduction in their population. “The data shows that the number of wolves in the steppe has greatly decreased,” Sputnik-Kazakhstan quotes Ustemirov as saying.
