Sweden is to launch its first wolf cull in 45 years, following a decision by parliament to control the species' numbers. Some 10,000 hunters are reported to be planning to take part - hoping to get a rare opportunity to bag a wolf.

This is sheer madness how can 10,000 hunters only kill 27 wolves at this rate the Swedish wolf is likely to be come extinct in a short period of time.I'm off to sign the petition.

This is so awful I don't really have the words.

Maybe that should happen to humans when there is to many humans in the way as well and maybe that would happen as well.

Thannxxx.. this is absolutely horrendous this mass murder of all these wolves... with so many hunters out there this can only lead to extinction of the species... I am shocked and horrified that Sweden has allowed this..
