"Germany slightly relaxed its tough laws on the culling of wolves on Wednesday, amid concern growing numbers pose a threat to livestock.

"Under new rules introduced by Angela Merkel’s government, licensed hunters will be called in to shoot wolves where there have been clear attacks on livestock.

"As it is often impossible to tell which animal carried out an attack, the reform raises the possibility that entire packs will be shot."

"A ban has also been imposed on feeding wolves, so as not to encourage the wild animal from shifting closer to human habitations for food."

Wait, so the Germans have "licensed hunters"?   They're calling in hit squads on the wolves?
