Sweden's bear hunting season will allow hunters to take up to 312 bears this year. Officials are hoping the season will help to keep bear numbers in check. Hunting is a popular sport in Sweden, where there are almost 300,000 hunters.
A spokesperson for the Swedish Association for Hunting and Wildlife Management stated that there are approximately 3,000 bears in Sweden. With some areas of the country having too many bears in them, they are looking at keeping the population at a more reasonable level.
