Three wolf packs, including pups, will be shot by hunters during Norway’s annual hunting season, which runs from Oct. 1 to March 31. Last year, 11,571 people applied for licenses to kill just 16 wolves. This season’s allotment would mark the largest wolf kill in the country since 1911.”This is an outright mass slaughter. Something similar we have not seen in nearly 100 years, when the policy was that all large carnivores would be destroyed,” Nina Jensen, CEO of World Wildlife Fund (WWF) of Norway, told The Guardian. “To shoot 70 percent of the wolf population is not worthy of an environmental nation.”She goes on to note, “This decision includes a wolf family in Letjenna who have not taken or eaten one sheep since they established themselves there in the winter of 2011/2012.”
The country that still kills whales to feed animals they kill for fur – who’s surprised. THey’ll probably turn them into pelts for sale. SHAME NORWAY SHAME!!!!
