Beslut om licensjakt på varg i Värmlands län 2016


County Administrative Board of Värmland has decided on the licensed hunting of a maximum 20 wolves in the county's own home ranges Brattfors, Sand Sea and Vimyren and the highest 6 wolves in the county-wide territory Loka, together with the Administrative Board Orebro. The hunt will be conducted from 2 January to 15 February 2016 or until the County Administrative Board before avlyser hunt.

The main purpose of licensed hunting is to reduce the density of wolf territories where it is greatest, to conflicts between humans and animals should be minimized. County Administrative Board of Värmland has decided on the licensed hunting of wolves, founded in the legal conditions available, calculation data from SKANDULV, agreed minimum levels of wolves, established inventory results and the objectives we have set in our regional management plans for large carnivores in the middle predator management area.

License Raiders comprises a total 46 individuals and the county considers this to be of limited amount and a reasonable cash out of the fox population size and growth.

The affected counties in the middle predator management area, after consultation agreed consumptive per county as follows:

Värmland - 20 Wolves
Orebro / Värmland - 6 Wolves (common territory Loka, hunting administered by the County Örebro)
Dalarna - 8 Wolves
Gavleborg - 6 Wolves
Västmanland - 6 Wolves

The distribution between counties follow the regional management plans for the wolf.

The County Administrative Board is now continuing the work of preparing for licensed hunting, in cooperation with other relevant counties.
