Bulgaria's environment ministry set an annual brown bear hunting quota for the first time this week, following a decades-long ban on killing the protected animals.

The ministry said in a statement it would allow the hunting of 17 animals this year, with dispensations distributed among seven bear-populated regions. The quota was determined based on three recent tallies of the bear population, which found that some 540 to 560 bears roam Bulgaria's mountains.
