Finnish wolf hunters had a permission to shoot one wolf of a herd. What happened? They shot the Alfa Female with a collar. By accident, they explained: "the collar was not visible anymore". And of course they shot another wolf of this herd, too. This happened only a couple days ago. But: this "accident" is told to be taken as a severe crime by finnish authorities. I have my doubts about it; but of course hoping there will be a Real punishment...!! Shame Finland! Thank you Cal so so very much for this petition!!

I have always had the greatest respect for the Finns - they fought the Russians and won (David vs Goliath)! - and they have always seemed to be so good, with a Scandinavian respect for Nature - I do desperately hope they let these wolves live!

Some people have some really wrong-headed beliefs about wolves--I don't know why.
Anyway, noted and signed--I hope we can do some real good for these poor, misunderstood creatures.
As always, thank you Cal.

Noted, thanks Cal. The U.S.A. isn't doing very well regarding wolves either. I don't think we should be throwing stones at the Finn's until we shape up our own country's actions, which are beyond disgusting for wolves. Big Stones should be thrown at a few states, like Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and some others who are marginal. Sorry, the "Humans First-Regardless of others" attitude around the world, brings out my anger.

Why the wolf hatred!? Why the deeply embedded world-wide hysteria!?

Take a look at "classics" like "Little Red Riding Hood" "Lon Po Po" and "The Three Little Pigs" !!!

Look at the movies out there right now!!! "Red Riding Hood" and "The Grey" are two of the most recent in a long line of ant-wolf promoting Hollywood films!!!

Defenders of Wildlife or The Nature Conservancy or EarthJustice or SOMEONE needs to step up and do a feature length, Hollywood backed documentary displaying the wisdom, beauty and intelligence of these highly social and incredibly inspirational animals !!!

Only 135 left?
How do our animals and plants just disappear before anything is said or done?
Especially if they are already on a countrys endangered species list.
Another animal looks to bite the dust.
