Please Sign For Swedish Wolves

The wolf hunt slaughter of Sweden’s tiny wolf population is egregious beyond measure. It’s simply outrageous what they are doing to wolves in Sweden. Once again a small minority want wolves killed and are dictating policy. One of these groups is moose hunters. Moose hunters are just 6% of the population in Sweden but just like in America, a small minority gets their way with politicians. Sound familiar?

This was sent to me from one of my Swedish readers:

“……did you know one hunter did shoot of a leeg from the wolf, just to stop him, another wolf did get 11 bullets before he died”.

Please sign this petition that will be sent to Environment Commissioner Janez Potocnik. Even though the hunt was allowed to go forward we need to let him know we support Swedish wolves and are against hunting them to satisfy special interest groups.

Here is another petition that was circulated before the hunts started. Click here for English version.

    • Thank you so much Agnes, I think we are making a difference. We are speaking out in defense of wolves but it’s a political battle, not grounded in science. Unforunately for wolves the power rests with the politicians and special interest groups. But we can never give up. Wolves have many more supporters but we’re not as well organized.

    • Loua, I’m sure it’s not the Swedish people that are in favor of this but small, vocal minorites who have political influence. It’s the same situation here. I know the majority of Americans do not want wolves slaughtered. Not all wolf supporters have been heard from, we have to be better organized. And we will be.

      • I can assure you all that there is a small group of people who want the wolf extherminated from Sweden. Those are the hunters! They want to make sure that the moose and deer are left to grow out of proportion so that they will have something to shoot at! They are actually so stupid that they state that in the news papers! After the wolf hunt is over, they will start the hunt for the lynx and they are upset that the number they will be allowed to kill is so low! Because the lynx kills the deer and buhu, there woun’t be enough left for them to hunt.. “We woun’t get any deer meat”. Seriously… I’m so ashamed to be a human AND Swedish.

      • Sussie…the same thing is happening here in America. It’s the hunters and ranchers. The same groups of people that don’t want them here. There are less then 500 wolves in Montana, approx 800 wolves in Idaho (probably less) and a little over 300 wolves in Wyoming. And they want to strip them of their endangered species protections and have the states “manage/kill” them. Well guess what, the wolves don’t belong to ranchers or the hunters and they don’t belong to the politicians, they are wild animals. The belong to themselves. As wolf advocates we have to support each other and say no more killing.

        Thank you for writing and we stand with the Swedish people and the Finnish people. Wolf adovcates united!!

      • Yeah, he he don’t worry I didn’t mean that. Just commented. 🙂
        Anyway, it is true that it usually always is the same story. Small minorities that want–in this case–a tiny wolf population culled just because they believe those moose belong only to them. What a shame with these people.

    • Thank you Allie for your support. We need Wolf Warriors to spread the word about the persecution of wolves. Specfically wolves in the Northern Rockies, who are under siege from legislators that want to please special interest groups, mainly hunters and ranchers. I’ll keep you in mind for any upcoming petitions or projects. If you want me to contact you by email let me know.

    • Brett…You have such a tiny population of wolves. Last year they killed 27 wolvesin the hunt and I read that 60 Swedish wolves died last year, including the 27 from the hunt. Sweden can’t affort to lose 60 wolves in one year. Now 20 more in this hunt. I hope the EU is successful suiing them but we have to raise your voices in protest. Agnes is right. We have to stand for the Swedish and Finnish wolves.

    • Great, great comment Agnes, You are a true Wolf Warrior. We more people like you to stand for wolves. I know the reason wolf advocates stay in the shadows because the anti-wolf people intimidate them with threats. Many people don’t want that kind of heat. But somethings are worth speaking out for. If we don’t do it, who will? Not sure what the climate is in Sweden or Finland. But I know the majority of people there do not want their wolves slaughtered. You are so right Agnes. This has to stop!!

    • No problem Agnes, I knew exactly what you meant. People in the Northern Rockies are being intimidated because of all the threats. It’s a fact. Plus I think the Europeans are more open to speak their minds. It didn’t use to be this way in America. It’s changing for the better though. People are pushing back against animal cruelty. And that’s what the wolf battle is really all about. Wolves being persecuted and killed for being wolves.

  17. I have had a very interesting debate in a local Swedish paper recently, about the unleagal wolf hunt that still flourish, among with the extremly cruel methods they use to get rid of them. In the article I tried to provoke a serious reaction and an answer from the leading profiles of the hunting organisation as well as the authorities, to see where they stand.
    The interesting thing is that NO ONE has commented it. No one has declared this to be a problem and that it’s absolutly must be stoped. It’s just a silient approval of what is going on. I think it’s political to unconvinient to go agains those groups. They sacrifice moral for “political power”. It’s really amasing, isn’t it?

    • Anders…In the Northern Rockies many of the the pro wolf people feel intimidated by the anti wolf crowd and keep silent or won’t go out in the streets and demonstrate because they don’t want their cars keyed or license plates copied. I myself have gotten death threats. These people are angry and can be very intimidating. That has hampered the pro wolf movement. We’re the silent majority. I think the politicians that are running this dog and pony show see that as a sign that people approve of this, which I know they don’t. It’s a dilemma.
