Norwegian wolves’ lives saved


This BBC video from Canada says about itself:

22 June 2016

Gordon Buchanan tries to get up close to the wolves‘ den using a special camera to see how many young cubs there are. Taken from Snow Wolf Family And Me.

Fortunately, not all hunting news is as bad as the news about Donald Trump’s sons.

Translated from Vroege Vogels TV in the Netherlands:

Norway stops shooting of two-thirds of the wolf population

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Also thanks to international pressure, the Norwegian Minister of Climate and Environment, Vidar Helgesen, has reversed the decision to kill two-thirds of the wolf population in the country. The four packs north of the Norwegian capital Oslo are saved.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is greatly relieved. According to Nina Jensen, CEO of WWF Norway, it is a great victory for Norwegian nature: “We have in recent weeks along with other organizations collected more than 60,000 signatures against the massacre of 47 wolves. There are only 70 wolves and the wild wolf population is already declining much, including by illegal hunting. The plan to cull nearly as much as seventy percent of the wolves in the country led rightly internationally to much criticism. We are pleased and grateful that the decision was reversed!”

Independent legal review

In October of this year the [government’s] Norwegian Centre for Nature decided to issue hunting permits to protect farmers and cattle. WWF Norway had asked for an independent judicial review of this decision. Jensen: “The statement by the Norwegian Minister is now obvious: it is not permissible to hunt wolves which do not harm sheep and other livestock. And that is the greatest victory!”

Now, one should hope that there will no exceptions to these new rules for the royal family of Sweden … or for the royal family of Spain … or for the royal family of Britain … or for the royal family of the Netherlands … or for the royal family of Belgium …or for princes from Qatar … or for Donald Trump’s sons.
