Every year, more than 80,000 elks are shot to death in Sweden. Every autumn, all elks and other wild animals in Sweden live in fear and panic for several months. This traumatises the animals and harms them emotionally and mentally.

Yes, it is a tradition, but it is also a necessity. As there aren't enough large predators to kill elks, the elk population has exploded more or less, and elks have become a real danger in traffic.
Does this mean I agree with the hunting policy in Sweden, no, not really, but you have to look at the issue from all sides before making a decision. I would much rather have a bunch of wolfes lurking around our forests than hunters, but that is not the case at the moment, or tomorrow.
