The impact on livestock of large carnivores, especially wolves, and the debates about their conservation and management have recently gained a lot of attention in several European regions.

The European Parliament has received a number of petitions (0984/2016, 0426/2018) illustrating some of the issues related to the status of wolf populations and their impact on EU citizens.

Large carnivore management is governed mainly by the Council of Europe’s Bern Convention and the EU’s Habitats Directive. While these instruments do not allow for open culling of large carnivores, over 900 wolves are deliberately killed each year in the EU.
