France shoots wolf dead after authorising bigger cull

The wolf was killed on Tuesday following a reported increase in attacks on livestock in the Alpes-Maritimes region of southeastern France.

Local farmers blame wolves for the death of 690 sheep or goats since the start of this year and claim attacks have been running at a rate of three per day.
