The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket) granted permission for the wolf to be hunted and killed. It was shot on Thursday evening after having been observed on a riverbank.
“It was good that the hunt could be resolved so quickly,” said Greger Nordlöf, environmental director for the Södermanland county administrative board.
On Friday, the wolf was transported to National Veterinary Institute for Autopsy, where it will be determined if it was the same predator behind the attacks on the livestock.
