Don’t Murder Last Remaining Wolves

Target: Olemic Thommessen, President of the Norwegian Parliament

Goal: Stop hunters from slaughtering over half of the wolves in Norway.

Hunters plan to kill over half of the wolves in a particular wolf population in Norway. Over 10,000 people may be given hunting licenses and granted permission to shoot 16 out of the 30 wolves that are thought to reside in the Norwegian wilderness. We need to take action to better ensure that these wolves will not be completely wiped out.

Hunting season runs from Oct. 1 to March 31. A main reason why wolves are hunted is to protect livestock. However, this reason is difficult to justify when one considers that a great deal of illegal hunting is speculated to take place in Norway. Furthermore, since hunters are allowed to kill all but three breeding females, the wolves are not able to reproduce at a fast enough rate to keep from dying off. With this being the case, hunting season should be canceled to ensure the wolves have a chance to thrive.

Demand hunting season be made against the law until these wolves drastically increase in number. If Norway continues down the same path, all of the wolves that live there will soon be dead.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Thommessen,

Hunters will soon be allowed to kill off over half of the wolf population in Norway. It does not make sense that thousands of hunters may be given the right to hunt 16 wolves when it is thought that there are only 30 left in the entire country.

Since Norway has a population of over 5 million people and there are only approximately 30 wolves in the entire country, there are likely not enough wolves in the region to eat the massive amounts of livestock the country contains. Experts speculate that illegal hunting takes place in the region, making hunting a majority of the wolves there unjustifiable. Since hunters are only required to make sure that the lives of three breeding females are spared, and female wolves only have between four to six wolf pups per year, the wolves will likely soon die off if they continue to be killed. Because of these circumstances, hunters should not be allowed to kill anymore wolves until their population significantly increases.

I therefore urge you to outlaw hunting season for the time being in Norway in order to give these beautiful animals a chance to flourish. If we don’t do something to help these animals, they will likely all soon be dead.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Essential! Listen to science, listen to the people. Do not allow this atrosity to continue

  2. Cecily Colloby says:

    I am totally sick of the bloody human race-why not hunt down and shoot some people instead?? THEY are the only true pests/parasites/vermin and should be culled instead of being allowed to breed unchecked…

  3. I oppose that because I sign the petition you want to fill my email inbox with yoir mail. I am still signing, because it is important to preserve wildlife, but I oppose your insistance on permission to spam me.

  4. The complete killing of wolves is wrong. All animals deserve to live and if the greedy land whore would take care and restore what is already there and quit buying and building elsewhere America would be better off….

  5. Lisa Lancaster says:

    To kill these magnificent animals is a crime against Mother Nature.

  6. Lisbeth Alvarado Sanchez says:

    This is barbaric and insane. All animals play an important part in nature. They have the same right as we to exist free and protected in their natural hábitats.

  7. david belcher says:

    I really hope a plague of their biblical proportion descends on the country.one that takes all the livestock and really hurts all the shit boot farmers

  8. WHAT ARE THESE STUPID HUNTERS IN NORWAY TRYING TO DO, CAST OUT ALL WILDLIFE FOR THE HECK OF IT???? I CAN NEVER UNDERSTAND HUMAN BEINGS SHOOTING THESE WOLVES AND I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT GOD GAVE ANIMALS, BOTH DOMESTIC AND WILD TO BE TAKEN CARE OF.. THE KILLINGS ARE SO SENSELESS AND CRUEL..
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. I would like to inform all the misguided, chicken-shit hunters out there…the big , bad wolf…is a FAIRY TAIL! It’s not real! You don’t have to be afraid of wolves! They will leave you alone, if, you leave them alone! Little red riding hood doesn’t exist, so you don’t have to save her! Grow up and jump into the 21st century. Stop persecuting these beautiful animals, because of a stupid myth stuck in your puny brain! Calm down and let wolves live!

    If ya’ll insist on killing something, why don’t you take a shot at an Isis terrorist? At the very least, make yourself useful!

  10. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser
