 Advocate-general Says Finnish Wolf Hunting Breaks, 30.11.2006 at 12:53

An EU advocate-general said Thursday that Finnish wolf hunting practices violated the union's environmental legislation.

Although the advocate-general's suggestion does not bind the European court of justice, its verdicts often uphold the proposals by advocates-general.

According to the advocate-general, Finland regularly issues wolf shooting licences that are not specific to animals that cause harm. EU legislation stipulates that only wolves that have caused harm to people and livestock can be killed.

Finland has consistently rejected the commission's view on wolf hunting and points out that Finland's wolf population has grown over the past few years.

But the advocate-general says the population is not yet at a sustainable level.

The European commission took Finland to the EU court in January 2005.
