In what amounts to mere posturing, Nordanstig’s council voted through a proposition which declares its desire to “work for a wolf-free municipality,” according to a report which appeared on a Swedish news website.

The bizarre part? There have been no wolves in the municipality for more than a century and if wolves were to return to the area, it would be the central government which would have to take any action necessary to manage the wolf populations.

Sweden recently held a very short wolf hunt were they kill more than 10 percent of the country’s estimated 220 or so wolves.

They then announced plans which included importing more wolves in to the country. Which leaves the international wolf community baffled by Sweden’s oddly schizophrenic attitude towards the predator.
