"– So low have we never had been since the inventories began in the mid-90s. You can say that it is an all time low, " says Alexander Winiger, inventeringsansvarig for large carnivores on the county board, to the P4."
"to secure a viable lodjursstam needed at least 32 family groups, according to the county's management plan."
"the Conditions for the inventory are considered to have been good, and the animals had plenty of food."
"– It's probably the human impact of the tribe in which the result is so low, " says Alexander Winiger."
