Hunting license for wolf in Hedmark
The County Governor of Hedmark has issued a hunting license for a wolf in the municipality of Rendalen after a lamb was taken by it.
Agricultural Officer Frank Engene in Rendalen municipality confirms to Østlendingen the granted permit to shoot a wolf. This happens after an attack on a sheep in the area.
