Appears Rancher influence is alive and well in Sweden Also. It is a Sad day when People allow GREED to win out over the species that were here long before us.

A top Swedish court has allowed the hunting of 24 wolves early in 2017 in a decision slammed by environmental campaigners who fear a shooting spree could put the species at risk.

“This is an unfortunate and surprising decision,” Torbjörn Nilsson, chairman of the Swedish Carnivore Association (Rovdjursföreningen), said in a statement.

The Surpreme Administrative Court of Sweden ruled that hunting 24 wolves in four territories of central Sweden was justified despite appeals by environmental campaigners.

“We regret but respect the decision,” Johanna Sandahl of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (Naturskyddsföreningen) said in a statement.

However, Sandahl said the court did not take into consideration the fact that the wolf population had dropped by 18 percent, and warned that the species was at risk of becoming endangered.

Hunting campaigns took place in Sweden in 2010 and 2011 with 46 wolves killed each time and in 2015 when 44 wolves were killed.

Sweden has about 340 wolves according to government figures.

The wolves, thought to be an extinct species in the Nordic nation in the 1970s, are protected by the Bern Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats of 1979.

Under Swedish law, hunting can be permitted if wolves pose a danger to livestock, as long as their own existence is not under threat.

The European Commission has urged the EU member state to completely prohibit the hunting of wolves which are “threatened by both geographical isolation and inbreeding”.

Sweden’s decision comes more than a week after neighbouring Norway announced it had slashed its hunting quota for wolves from 47 to 15, concluding it would violate Norwegian law and the Bern Convention.

Meanwhile, Finnish authorities said in October they planned to maintain the culling of its protected wolf population to prevent illegal poaching, despite opposition from environmentalists.

    What can we do to permanently protect all wolves throughout North America, Sweden and everywhere that ranchers with livestock who seem to think they take presidence over this great species?? I mean seriously. There are a zillion of them to a few hundred wolves. It makes NO sense. Humanity is going in the wrong direction. This kind of cattle ranching is right up there with factory farming and needs to change and admit it is not acceptable or suitable to an environment that provides and protects all species. And that includes man. Sp

      Large NPOS have told us their Lawyers have not found any legal way, But that our Native American Religious Treaty rights may stand a chance! It is just to sad that those same NPOS are to afraid that sharing our articles or writing about us because it will remove any focus from them, they fear their golden egg will get placed elsewhere…
