Norway temporarily bans wolf hunting after outcry

I am quite a ways into writing Strange & Mysterious Beasts and wolves have cropped up quite a bit. Then I saw this item.  To state that there are 100 wolves left in Norway is saying that they are not going to survive long. Of course, Norway, like other countries, has the option of declaring the wolves extinct when they are gone and then re~introduce them to provide more 'sport'. 

It seems to work in the United States.  France, of course, suffers from "wolfaphobia" and the policy seems to be the same as centuries ago: if it's a wolf ~kill it.

European Union member states ~and I include the UK here~ have always seemed to turn a blind eye to legislation or come up with some excuse to get around whichever law it does not want to bother with.

This is the 21st century and people are still killing animals for fun.
