Two men who deliberately killed a wolverine by repeatedly running it over with their snowmobile faced a court on Wednesday over allegations of aggravated hunting crimes and animal cruelty.

"This would have been extremely painful for the wolverine," said prosecutor Christer B Jarlås to the Aftonbladet newspaper.

The men, both aged 30, were snowmobiling in April 2010 at Arjeplogsfjällen, northern Sweden, when they decided to attack the wolverine.

It is alleged that they ran over the animal five times, crushing its skull and killing it, before dumping the body in a pond 12 kilometres away. Preliminary investigations led experts to believe the hunt may have even lasted several days.

Two years sounds about right, but in Sweden they often hand out shorter sentences for homicide,

What cowards to deny it .. they should admit and apologize and do 4 year apprenticeships servicing snowmobiles and learning self defense.

What was the point of killing this animal, anyway, especially in such a brutal way?

@johan rebel
Would you care to provide some statistics to corroborate your claim.

Askar, Johan is right. Haven't you been reading up on the ridiculous sentences the hand out for murder, rapes etc? It tend to range between 6 months for rape and 18 months for murder.

Two years! Two years! You get less than that for punching an old lady to death in a supermarket carpark just for taking your parking space.
Oh well, it could have been worse. They might have run over a hedgehog. In Sweden, it's a minimum of 12 years for killing a hedgehog.

Instead of sentancing them to 2 years, Sentance both of them to 1 week with me in the mountains of Åre and let me play with them and show them athe same degree of curtacy and respect that they have show to this wonderful animal. Let the hunter become the hunted .Premitive scum of the earth these kind of people.

They shouldn't get any jail time at all. Instead they should be sentenced to being run over five times by a snowmobile. Let's see how they like it.
