• Environment Cantabria defies the Government and authorizes the hunting of wolves in the areas that have suffered the most attacks

  • Government The Iberian wolf will continue to be unable to be hunted anywhere in Spain

The Minister for the Environment, Housing and Territory Planning,

Juan Carlos Suárez-Quiñones

, has confirmed that the

Junta de Castilla y León

"will do the same as Cantabria", where wolf hunting has been authorized in the areas with the most attacks, something that, as he has defended,

will be done with legal backing


The counselor has referred to this matter after holding a meeting with the provincial delegates at the

Fire Defense Center

to coordinate the operation of the summer months against forest fires.

This decision has been adopted, after Cantabria has authorized hunting wolves in the areas that have suffered the most attacks and that have made Suárez-Quiñones remember that

both Galicia, Castilla y León, Principality of Asturias "are coordinated".

In this sense, he has remarked that there is

a chat in which they speak "despite being from different

, multiple governments, but which suffer an attack from unconscious radical environmentalism" from the Government of Spain.

It is because of this circumstance that they are waiting for the necessary legal support "to do everything possible within the law and

defend the interests of ranchers


Suárez-Quiñones has denounced "the

absolute irresponsibility

" of the Central Executive that has left the autonomies without legal support and that after making this ministerial order "in an improvised and sloppy way" has led to "the 20 million euros for measures preventive and compensatory damages.

In addition, he has criticized "the lack of commitment to livestock" of the Government of Spain, which he attacks, leaving the wolf free and not providing the means to continue compensating.
