Sweden Wolf Cull Divides Wilderness Opinion

- 1958 days ago -
Sweden has suspended a controversial cull of its wolf population shortly after it began because of a legal challenge by conservationists. Three of the 16 wolves allowed under the quota were killed before the hunt was called off.

In Switzerland (St. Moritz) we has only 1 bear called M13. The brother of this bear called M12 he was killed 4 years ago why hunter and the stupid popolation cry that is not places for bears in the region of St. Moritz. Now bear M13 has only a chance to go in Italy why in September beginn the swiss hunting saison. Poore bear, he is comdamned to killed only why he eat a pair of sheep. Switzerland country of murder and animal killers!!!
Kindest regard Peter Blattner. Animal friends think a bit of this poor bear!!!!

If wolves are damaging to someone's livlihood, then perhaps they should think outside the box and come up with solutions that don't involve killing the wolves. It's quite frustrating to realize people are so unwilling to try anything different so we could all live together, in peace.

The inability to move about freely, and the inbreeding that causes is in itself a slow death sentence for these wolves..I hope Sweden can figure out how to best manage them..
Lord knows that "management" of them here in the US has become a pseudonym for "murder by whatever way you feel like on that day".
So we have absolutely no credibility within the global community to pass judgements .

Not that it will stop us from HOWLING for justice for these magnificent creatures!

Noted, but didn't you see the story Pope Benedict XVI in shock resignation (Pope Benedict XVI is to resign at the end of this month in an unexpected development, saying he is too old to continue at the age of 85....) It's in red on the right side of the screen.

The worldwide slaughter of wolves is disgusting and is a sad commentary on humans.

.If wolves (globally) had more food available(I mean wild animals to kill an eat)they woul hardly ever kill domesticate animals.The fact that we hunt for sick or old deer,elk,wild boar etc.etc. instead of wolves doing this, creates lack of food available for them.Their role in nature has been to the be cleaners-those who make sure that old an sick animals ''get taken care of''naturally.Now we have taken this from wolves an created a HOBBY called HUNTING.Not to mention the poachers,who are responsible for many deaths of animals- killing them illegally and depriving wolves of food.So who is the culprit???The animal that will do anything to assure the survival of its own species or animal that kills for trophies?
As for reindeer farms,these reeindeers belong to Sami people who every year kill them to put their meet on scandinavian tables.In Lonon for example you can get pate made with reindeer meat that costs 15 fo 190gr of product.So money talks!I am sure that Sami keep them in thousands so does it really matter if they lose some to wolves?

"In short, hunters don't like wolves."
Oh, really? Wolf hunters don't like wolves? Couldn't even imagine if you didn't explain it... >_>
One of the hunters in the article says he likes breeding dogs? What the hell? Killing the wolf while breeding the dog, the irony.
They say killing wolves "it's not a hobby, it's a lifestyle"? More like a "deathstyle". What a bunch of blood-thirsty idiots hunters are. They all deserve to die.

Noted - the killing just goes on and on - what does it say about mankind - we are the most dangerous, most despicable species on this planet! And every day I pray that hunters, poachers and animal abusers are punished in the most horrendous way possible.
