YEREVAN. – Wolf population has increased in Armenia due to heavy snowfalls, Armenian Minister of Nature Protection Aram Harutyunyan told the journalists on Thursday.
During the Thursday session the government approved the Ministry’s decision to allocate about $50,000 to award hunters killing wolves.
The Minister claimed the decision was agreed with experts, hence, it would hardly raise concerns of environmentalists. According to the Minister, killing of 200 wolves will not damage the population.
