The wolf has been blamed for livestock losses just like here in the United States because of irresponsible livestock producers. Each year there are over 2 million sheep released into the forests & mountains of Norway without supervision. You think that might be a temptation for wolves on wide open land just like here in the United States?

Barely 2% of livestock losses are from wolves and over 100,000 sheep die for other reasons.  Still, Norway decided to ahead with a wolf hunt which began on January 2nd and ends February 15th. It would be the largest mass slaughter in 40 years! Norway is set on wiping out most of the population.

The wolf is now critically endangered in Norway with only around 56 wolves in all of southern Norway and killing 42 of then would wipe out the population that’s been carefully revived over the past four decades.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “Norwegian adoration for nature is a vital ingredient in the country’s national identity.”  Yet they slaughter hundreds of whales each year. Last year 880 whales were killed and now they want to kill the few remaining wolves.  They do not deserve one tourist dollar from anyone! Not one product from Norway should be purchased.

Many are hoping that with enough public outcry worldwide we could possibly stop this hunt from continuing. Please sign the petition and share with everyone. 

For those that tweet, there will be a tweet sheet ready by 12:00 pm EST on Sunday, Jan. 7th provided by “In the Shadow of the Wolf”   

Thank you~ L.G

    Why oh why do you want to slaughter these magnificent creatures? Surely we are the true evil animal here wiping out innocent creatures that just want to live as we do. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Show some compassion. There is enough killing going on in this world can we not protect these innocent lives?

    Wolves are a vital part of a healthy ecosystem. It is irresponsible and immoral to exterminate them.

    What do Scandanavians have against wolves? There are pitiably few in Norway, Sweden and Finland and those come mainly from Russia. These countries are large in area with small populations but allow no space for wolves, bears, wolverines, lynx and other wild animals that eat game. Are they considered as ”rivals” by the thousands of hunters in each Scandanavian country? Is the revenue garnered by the governments selling licences for their killing of wildlife so attractive?

      Previous to the establishment of a farming culture in Norway and Scandinavia, their myths, philosophies, and religious beliefs were more interlinked with the wolf and nature. Their myths recognized wolves as trusting and intelligent, and men (through their gods) as more scheming and deceptive.
      But that is another story, as worldwide those humans who exploit animals for gain, create false conflict with nature and with the 2 million-year balancer and enricher of living systems, the wolf.

      When we imagine ourselves as superior or independent of nature, and exclude any of its other kinds, what we do in reality, is exclude ourselves from the whole, the community. Humans naturally split up when our numbers become too great for a habitat to sustain us. We have exceeded this nearly everywhere for so long that we take the end product of dispute, war, as normal.
      Just as wolves maintain only small separate communities, with adequate resources and space, so, one day, will we again have to do so. Norway has for very long, reached across entire oceans to exploit in the most efficient way: the world’s great whales were almost wiped out early last century by failure to restrain what seemed limitless opportunity to profit.
      Many people from Norway moved to the northern US forest country, and for my lifetime, have been the most thoughtlessly cruel antiwolf rural people.
      The unfortunate colonization of that country coincided with the early to mid 1800s development of mass-produced projectile weaponry, another massively underregulated overexploitative issue.

    Oh such brave men, picking on helpless animal. NOT!!! Shame on you! I look forward to your down fall!

    There are current scientific studies regarding the vital role of Apex Predators. Perhaps those “wildlife managers” in Norway should read them before embarking on an outdated approach such as this war against wolves.

    Stop eradicating your wolves and educate yourselves on their value to any environment. Your brutal and extreme approach to wolf killing is shameful and ignorant.

    The role of this Apex Predator is fundamental to a healthy ecosystem. I simply ask what science do they follow to allow such treatment to these sentient beings who only want to coexist. Then of course we could learn so much from these animals yet we systematically ignore & slaughter the innocent.This is immoral and it saddens me to think a future without wolves is no future at all.
