I read on the BBC News website the wolf cull in Sweden has been suspended this year. Did I miss something or did the Local just ignored reporting on this?

When was it suspended?

The Local reported on Feb. 2nd. that the first wolf of this year's quota had been shot.

[Edit] Found the story on the BBC website from Feb. 7th regarding the cull being suspended, it obviously doesn't fit into The Local's news agenda.

Strange that The Local fails to report Swedish news! Was a big story when the hunt started. The news it had been stopped by the EU failed to even get a sniff!

Where do you get your information that it was stopped by the EU?

The BBC report says:

it was suspended pending a full legal review after conservationists appealed to the courts.

and

The EU had also protested against the cull, saying it violated European law.

No where does the BBC report say that the cull was stopped by the EU.

It has not been stopped by the EU. In fact for the EU to stop it would take a couple of years through the court biggrin.gif

...What has happened is that the case by the NGOs has been passed to the Swedish court, and that court has to initially decide if the cull of wolves as proposed breaks Swedish law or not ...in order to do that there is a temporary suspension of the action.

that's fine by me, free range, additive free and no vet's chemicals, artificial feed or growth enhancers, wolf has to be fairly safe meat to eat.

I'll eat any meat, on the provision that the animal was kept responsibly, not fed cra* etc and was killed humanely. It's only our human attachment that makes us think that we can and can't eat certain things.
