we, or shall we not have wolves in
I have decided to write an argument essay instead, since
this is a highly discussed question in
We shall not have wolves in
was nine children kill in
The wolf is a beast of prey which feed on field-mouse, lemmings, hares, birds foxes, calves from reindeers, grown up reindeers, mousse, tame animals like swine, sheep, goats, dogs and even cadavers sometimes. And of course the wolf can kill a human being.

What will the inbreeding lead to??
leads often to malformation and a lesser natural reserved wolf. Which
in turn will lead to that it will search contact will human being, tame
animals and their place to live. The wolf will also adjust to
a life in the community, since there is easy to find food. This is an
incredible important thought to think about when it comes to the question,
why we not shall have wolves in
Do we need to have a wolf population in
ice age disappearing from Scandinavia has there been wolves in

A law that doesn’t work
In the law book in Sweden §28 can we reed following: “Har en björn, varg, järv eller lo angripit och skadat eller dödat tamdjur och finns skälig anledninga att befara ett nytt angrepp, får tamdjurets ägare eller vårdare utan hinder av fredning eller bestämmelserna i. Vidare laser vi I §9 döda det angripande djuret, om det sker I omedelbar anslutning till angreppet. Sådan jakt är dock inte tillåten inom national park.”
Which means: Has a bear, wolf, wolverine or a lynx attacked and harmed or kill a tame animal and there is reason to believe a new attack, then the owner of the tame animal without any obstacle of protection or the regulation, further on in §9 kill the attacking animal, if it will happens in direct connection to the attack. That kind of hunt is not allowed in national parks.
The minim penalty fore broad hunting crimes is today 6 month in prison and the maxim penalty is 4 years in prison.
This penalty can you get if you have killed a wolf. To tame animals counts animal on a farm as for an example cattle sheep and lambs. This law includes also dogs and other tame animals. Therefore should this law immediately change, so that you can defend your animal already at the first attack! The right to protect a dog is not a threat against the wolf. Between 2 – 4 wolves ought to get killed every year if the hunters was allowed to shoot wolves that attacks dogs. This appraisal does wild animals researcher that has investigated almost every case of wolf attacks against dogs since the last 10 years.
to present law in
Another example about that the law doesn’t work can we reed about in a debate article in the Magazine Hundsport no. 3 / 2006, page 11
Rolf Frid that is a dog owner that has written about his dog:
Thanks for 7 nice years, Tass!
You where one of my dearest friends and one of my best hunting friend, that helped me and the Swedish government to find traffic damaged wild animals. I will never forget you. That morning when you were lie beside me in the bed. And later on lie in the woods, tear to pieces by wolves, felt really hard. And the only thing that was left of you was the head, the paws and the skeleton.
If I had been there to see this, and to see what would happened then I had tried everything to help you. Even if this is according to the law forbidden.
And after this have the experience from one of the ministers in the Swedish government regarding all the contempt and arrogance against us who lives in the countryside feels even heavier. Don’t forget this with the next election!!
wolf threatening the living countryside in
I think there is a possibility that the wolf will exterminate the human from the countryside, I found this thought on that the wolf seams to be more worth and the human!! Everyone that lives in the countryside and has tame animals on their farm can have contributions from the Swedish government to put up safe wolf fence around their farm. Well this could be ok, but who will live on the countryside with a safe wolf-fence on 2 meter high around their fields and houses. I would compare this with a prison, were you have the same fence to watch every day. And further on, shall all hunters that live on the countryside also get contributions to put up wolf-safe fences around their hunting-land that will cost very very much money for the government. As we further on also can read in Caroline Gulsvik veterinary student, 1st year from 2004 essay. Both the Swedish and the Norwegian government is cooperating and try to protect the wolf population and in the same time try to protect the livestock in the area. So that everyone that lives in the same biotope could be pleased. Well its not an easy question to solve!
The major problem for the hunter is that there is not a possibility to let the dog loose in the area where it is wolves. The major reason for this is, when a wolf hears a barking dog will the wolf search up the dog just to kill it. An example of this can we read about in the Swedish magazine “Svenska stövar Klubbens tidskrift, Medlemsblad 2005 No 1 page 41”
“Part of the side was ripped away – the dog had been totally tear apart and killed by two wolves. And with a closer investigation it showed totally cleared that the wolves had deliberately had focused to get the dog. This was confirmed through backtracking. The wolves had turned after the sound of the dog, quickly and fast found it, toured it apart and killed it. This is why we cant have wolves if we in the same time wants to have a living country-side fore people that wants to practice their interests like for an example hunting.
Further on could we hear on Swedish TV-news a reportage about a family living in värmland their the child in the family had the same way to the school bus that also happens to be the wolf daily highway. The consequence of this has been that the community in the area has changed the rule and from now on pick up the child at the house instead.
Why not an Alfa pair on Djurgården in Stockholm?
If we shall
have wolves in
But you can also think in another perspective. If a mother is out walking with her two children and her little cute dog, suddenly there will come a wolf and take that cute little dog just in front of the children and theirs mother. I this will happened, then the city person will change opinion about the wolf be or not to be. When the city person have to just as the countryside persons need to do now. Live together in the same biotope as the wolf.
It is important to protect our unique
right of common access in
we don’t need to have wolves in
