The ministry and the Principality of Asturias agree to a new system for killing wolves

The Principality and the Ministry for the Ecological Transition have reached an agreement to resume control of the herds that are causing the most damage in the area. Alejandro Calvo, Minister of Territorial Cohesion said that the ministry accepted our proposal regarding the procedures and guarantees to be used to implement the controls. This allows us to create the Management Plan we requested. He stated that the Ministry of Territorial Cohesion will approve the technical document that ensures that we can carry out a control plan when it is necessary.

Calvo assured it was "good news" that the technical agreement would be developed in consultation with the livestock associations. Counselor Calvo acknowledged that the document, which will "black on white" establish the procedures to be followed before shooting down specimens, is not the same as it was up until now. The control resolutions will be unique. The Principality had previously established a balance of actions and a quota for killing animals in areas that suffered the most damage. The wolf has been added to the Lespre list of wild species of special protected (Lespre) since September. This created a legal dispute. According to the ministry, the measure did not affect Asturias and there was an option for continuing shooting down specimens if it was necessary and necessary. To give legal certainty to those responsible for carrying out controls, the Principality was asked to clarify the procedure in a regulatory document.

The parts and protected species have met for almost a year without any specimen being killed. Calvo stated that the situation had deteriorated over this period. Calvo stated that he intends to publish immediately the resolution reached during the month, which will give legal coverage for the controls to take place in the 2021-2022 seasons. This is a solution to the current circumstances, the counselor said, but the Principality will continue to file judicial appeals, which it filed along with Galicia Cantabria, Castilla y Leon, and Castilla y Leon, against the decision to protect the wolf.
