  1. The hunters threaten with illegal hunting! The wolf issue in Sweden is very inflammatory. It’s not only about wolf hatred it’s about rural communities vs. urbanites.
    One hunter told me , I don’t dislike the wolves I hate the NGOs.

  2. Reblogged this on Wolf Is My Soul and commented:

    I for one, certainly don’t buy the arguments presented by farmers and hunters in the heated wolf debate. For all I care their beliefs are outdated and self-serving in a country that easily can sustain them all due to the vast pieces of wilderness. I’m glad that the Eurpean Commission interfered with the earlier plans of a cull and stopped them dead in their tracks. Way to go EU!!
