Statistics show unchanged älgavskjutning and very few predators damage despite continued large wolf population in Värmland

The latest statistics show that älgavskjutningen for hunting year 2011-12 Located on the same level as the year before, as your 7200 Moose. Of these over 3000 calves, ca 150 less than last year. Game injury statistics for Varmland 2011 shows that wolves killed 14 sheep and 7 dogs. Lo killed 4 sheep and 1 get. This is historically very low numbers.

At the same time, we have had a continued large wolf population by over 20 wolfterritories. The wolf population seems to have increased between 2010 och 2011, at least not in Värmland. We have received several new wolf territories, but the number of regenerations 2011 looks to be slightly less than 2010. Wolf inventory is not finished yet but this is preliminary data.

According to the article he expresses himself particularly if Värmland and Dalarna, where wolves are common today, but without actually being active there.
