This article is just AWFUL ...BLAHHHH....

Wild wolves and brown bears killed over £20 Rudolph pâté...

WILD wolves and bears are being slaughtered just to protect herds of reindeer destined for posh Brits’ dinner tables, The Sun can reveal.

Upmarket London store Fortnum & Mason is flogging tins of reindeer pâté for £20 as an “indulgent winter treat”.

The cans, emblazoned with “relative of Rudolf”, on the labels, use meat from animals bred on the icy plains of mid and north Sweden by indigenous Sami herders.

But outraged conservationists say scores of wolves, lynx and brown bears are being butchered in legalised hunts to protect the herds — and the £15million a year reindeer industry.

Send a protest to EU Commissioner
Below is the letter in English that you send to the EU Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik.

Dear Commissioner Potočnik
I have Noted That the European Commission has responded Regarding the an extensive hunting of wolves in Sweden.
I am writing to you because I'm still worried about the survival of the wolves in Sweden. Despite the criticism of the Swedish management plan, the Environment Minister Lena EK still wants to Implement A Genetic cleansing hunt of wolves.
The Government relies on a hastily Produced research report That scientists themeselves Consider to be inadequate as a basis for SCh hunt. Further More the Prerequisite for the hunt is an extensive introduction of unrelated wolves. Many Regard this as completely unrealistic.
This case, the Government has overpriced pushed forward a process for Determining favourable conservation status for wolves in Sweden. The scientists Appear to disagree about the results and the process has been impossible to follow or understand. The wolf issue is highly controversial in Sweden and it is there present Especially Regrettable That Citizens and stakeholders havebeen denied insight into how important decisions' havebeen Reached.
When the government Introduced licensed hunt of wolves, Which points to an EU complaint in 2010, there was a massive public outcry. However, the government did not listen to the strong public opinion in Favour of Protecting the Swedish wolf population, nor are they doing so now. There is reason to suspect That the government does not have the viability of the wolf population in focus, but That wolves have instead Become a pawn in a political game.
I am there present now appealing to you as our final hope for the Swedish Wolves. I ask you to put a stop to hunting for the purpose of genetic cleansing. I am asking you to overpriced Demand That Should Sweden re-examine its calculations Regarding how many wolves are needed to reach favourable conservation status and open up the process and invite all relevant scientists to Be Involved and Contribute withtheir views.

Yours sincerely

After signing petition a link will be sentto your email address. Open the email and click on the link. You acknowledge then that you're sending the email above to the Commissioner Potočnik.

Utterly sickening. Just how low are we, human beings, prepared to sink into the cess-pit of brutality and depravity? Is there no end to our inhumanity, just for the sake of filthy, stinking profit and greed? Shame on the gold-digggers and all involved in this disgusting practise, not that I expect anything different from the gun-toting, trigger-happy, brain-dead, hearltess, soul-less morons posing as hunters, killing all just for the sake of 'fun, sport, entertainmen and now, money.

This is the exact same thing that's happening in the mid west US where the gov't is sanctioning the slaughter of wolves so that they don't disturb the cattle. We can't allow the annihilation of wolves for the profits of special interest groups. This is out of control.

Sickening. Killing is always the first solution for the greedy ones that want the money. The loss of these magnificent creatures is unacceptable. They can't be allowed to get away with this.

so this is because "some Brits want pate and bears and wolf die" or "stupid Sami hurting animals, go vegan or go to war!"?

or is it a "greedy Sami sell pate to make someone more greedy to sell to people for indulgance and now all the meat eating animals die so some rich idiot gets a blood soaked treat"?

I thought the Sami were more into doing things for themself.

Colleen Prinssen (14)
Thursday December 27, 2012, 10:25 am true true. they should use horse or sled dog if they want to be traditional. right? but then you'll whine that the dogs are slaves.

so, you want these people to fence in the deer like a feed lot cow herd?

Colleen, I really can not FATHOM the thought WHY anyone would come to the conclusion to need to kill predators to protect their feedlots in the fashion they have taken, but this is what is happening here, they are flying helicopters and shooting bears,bobcats and wolves down in case they might get close to the reindeer...because of the market value of selling the meat for Pate' ALL the animals are getting slaughtered in some terrible way. Totally disgusting and not acceptable.

Colleen Prinssen (14)
Friday December 28, 2012, 7:34 am oh yes, feedlots like the ones we have

roxy H (350)

Don't we wish they all could feel like the souls are close like that video instead of eating them like the other people are doing...thank you colleen for showing that there is others who feel differently, sadly there is always 2 sides to eveything. so we need to get this stopped even more
