Federal Administrative Court

Evidence options for killing a Alpha Wolf will be adjusted

In future, in addition to DNA evidence, other evidence will also be permissible in order to obtain permission to shoot a alpha wolf that has caused considerable damage. This was decided by the Federal Administrative Court.

The cantons can now also provide other, objective evidence that a parent animal in a wolf pack was significantly involved in the damage. This emerges from a judgment of the Federal Administrative Court published on Friday.

So far, the Federal Office for the Environment has only permitted DNA evidence from dead livestock if a shooting permit has been applied for. The court considers this view to be too narrow.
