I hate what my goverment is doing to the wolfs, I live in farmlands and here the farmers keep an eye on their sheeps just like any other places in the world the people look after their lifestock these anti wolf farmers just push em out of the gate and wish em the best of luck.. O.O its sick.

some background on the wolf in Norway:

The historic Scandinavian wolf linage died out in the 1960.
The wolf that now lives here have immigrated from Russia/Finland in the 70-80s
The wolf has their own administration area in Norway.
There are about 330 wolfs in scandiavia, these are devied into about 33 packs, and 27 coupels.
Its a goal in Norway to have atleast 3 new baby packs (unsure of the english word) in the "administration" sone every year.
Its illigal to hunt wolfs, kill them and trade in wolf parts and they are considerd endagred and are proteced by law. if they kill lifestock and pose a treath to pets there can be given a license to hunt down the wolf/wolfs in question.

So please help me protect these lovely creatures that I love. That I am so lucky to have in my country.
