Sheep farmers in Rendalen in Hedmark have been imposed by the FSA to bring animals from pasture a month earlier than planned because of several wolf attacks.

– We saw wolves yesterday and have permission to use a helicopter to trap it, says Erik Ola Helstad, who is the felling manager of Norwegian Nature Inspectorate to NRK news.

From late June until now the wolf has killed between 150 to 160 sheep in the areas Sølendalen and Spekedalen, the channel reports.

Permission to trap two wolves has been given and hunting is currently underway. A wolf that killed at least 90 sheep in Rendalen, was shot in late July.
