More wolves shot amid boycott fears / Norway

This one is especially so, because it allows hunting in an area that had been set aside as a protected zone where wolves would be allowed to exist.Government officials’ decision to allow the hunt over the protests of environmental and wildlife conservationists prompted activists just over the border in Sweden to try to sabotage it on Tuesday. A group called “Hunt Saboteurs Sweden” announced that they had localized the hunters and knew where they’d be gathering.
