Culling of brown bears stayed after 180 already killed

Ljubljana, 30 May - In the latest development in the tug-of-war between institutions and environmentalists over culling quotas for carnivores, the Administrative Court has temporarily halted the culling of 230 brown bears okayed in mid-April. NGO Alpe Adria Green is nonetheless up in arms, as 180 bears have already been culled.
