Restoring balance in our world…

The Swedish government over the last couple of years has allowed hunters licences to kill wolves in Sweden. The  government claiming that the wolves are in bad health because of in breeding need to be thinned out. The government has said they plan to bring in fresh breeding stock to revitalize the wolves in Sweden. Other animal rights groups have contested the governments findings and did their own studies. The wolves that have been killed thus far were healthy animals. Thus far there has been no new wolves have been release. It seems that that idea was presented in the media to defend their indefensable actions. There has been a huge debate in Sweden over wolves conservation and now  the EU has forbidden it from continuing. I realize that wolf packs have ventured farther south than they have in modern times. They have ventured closer to populated areas Gothenburg and even Stockholm. There have been 2 wolf attacks involving people walking dogs around Stockholm’s outskirts. The dogs are what the wolves attacked…. I know that a lot of farmers are upset because of loss of livestock…. I guess I have a unique perspective, because I have lived in both large cities and out in the country. I am very observant of the wildlife in my area. I understand the fear and myths of wolves. It is my humble opinions that  the same policies for bears in Värmland should be applied to wolves. The rare times a bear has attacked a person in the woods the bears have been put down. Earlier this year an elderly man was walking to his fishing hole and was attacked by a mother bear with two cubs. I believe the man died of his injuries. The decision was made to hunt down and kill all three animals because of public safety issues. Wolves ,bears, lynx, moose … usually avoid human contact. Seeing them in the wild is a rare occurence and a privilege, but rare occasions can result in tragedy. The film below only reinforces my belief that all animals have an important place in our echo structure. http://themetapicture.com/when-they-brought-these-wolves/
