OSLO:- A Norwegian court on Tuesday granted a reprieve to seven wolves near Oslo caught in the middle of a battle between environmental activists and sheep farmers. The Oslo district court granted a request from the Norwegian branch of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and issued an injunction temporarily stopping the hunt of 12 wolves in the Oslo region - five of which have already been killed - pending a final decision on the matter. The number of wolves in the Scandinavian country is modest - between 105 and 112 individuals, according to the latest count - and the species is listed as being at risk of extinction. But its current population is above the target set by Norway’s parliament.
