Sweden has given permission to shoot 293 Bears.
Eleven bears already shot in Dalarna. This county has a quote of 38 Bears.
On Sunday morning began in the year of bear hunting license. After just a few hours, just before eight o'clock, was the first Bear convicted.
It was a small female bear, probably a kid from last year.
A rising bear population in Sweden has led to raised hunting quotas this year. There are estimated to be over 2,550 bears in the country, of which hunters are allowed to shoot 184 between now and the end of the season on October 15th.
The Swedish Association for Hunting and Wildlife Management says that interest for bear hunting has increased this year.
Sweden has killed a lot of their predators this year. About 20 Wolves and and about 100 Lynx are killed.
Now also the Bears
