Save Norway’s Wolves: Tweetstorm 

Wolves are listed as “critically endangered” on the 2015 Norwegian list of endangered animals, yet Norway is planning to cull more than two-thirds of its remaining wolves — a move that will be disastrous for the dwindling members of the species in the wild. Under controversial plans approved last Friday as many as 47 wolves will be shot, from an estimated population of about 68 wolves which remain in the wilderness areas of Norway. The government has justified this year’s planned cull on the basis of harm done to sheep flocks by the predators. The number of wolves the government plans to kill this year is greater than in any year since 1911.

Last year more than 11,000 hunters applied for licences to shoot 16 wolves, a ratio of more than 700 applicants to each licence. 

Parliament allows the regional predator committees to have the power to adopt quotas for felling of wolves, but these decisions are usually appealed. Oppositions will be dealt with very thoroughly by the Climate and Environment Minister within the framework allowed for the parliamentary decision on the quota of wolves. The decisions must also be consistent with the Berne Convention, the Draft Act and Predators Regulations. Norway is under international agreements committed to ensuring the survival of wolves in Norwegian nature. The Climate and Environment Ministry will make a final decision on the appeal cases before the “permissions to kill” period starts.

If the decision to kill 47 wolves stands, then three wolf packs, including pups, will be shot by hunters during Norway’s annual hunting season, which runs from Oct. 1 to March 31.

 34. Situation 4 #wolves in Norway is already grim. Wolves allowed to exist in just 1% of the country~designated a “wolf zone” #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves  

35. But once three pairs of wolves have bred, all the rest can be shot. Outrageous! #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves  Tweet4Wolves  

36. 68 or so #wolves is far from a genetically viable population. Slaughtering 47 = imminent extinction! #SaveOurWolves @VidarHelgesen Tweet4Wolves

41. #Norway compensates farmers richly 4 livestock losses due to wolves, creating an impetus for inflated depredation  numbers. #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

42. In reality wolves are responsible for barely 2% of livestock loss in #Norway @erna_solberg @VidarHelgesen #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

43. The wolf is an enrichment 4many Norwegians who appreciate being able 2 experience nature in its full complexity #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

44. It seems that Norwegian farmers have a vendetta against wolves which isn’t rooted in fact, but rather fear & hate @NorwayUN #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves  

45. Decision 2 cull 70% of Norway’s wolves cannot B consistent with the Berne Convention, Draft Act and Predators Regulations! #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves

57. Situasjonen 4 #wolves i #Norge er allerede dystre. Bare 1% av landet er utpekt en “ulv sone”, der dyrene er “lov” til å eksistere. Tweet4Wolves 

 58. Men når tre par ulver har avlet, kan resten bli skutt. Opprørende! #Verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

 59. 68 eller så #wolves er langt fra en genetisk levedyktig bestand. Slakting 47 = overhengende utryddelse! @erna_solberg @VidarHelgesen Tweet4Wolves 

60. #Norge har et nasjonalt og internasjonalt ansvar for å ha en levedyktig bestand av ulv. #SaveOurWolves #Verdtåbevare Tweet4Wolves

63. Norge kompenserer bøndene rikt 4 tap av husdyr på grunn av ulv, og skaper en drivkraft for oppblåste rovdyrangrep tall. #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

64. I virkeligheten ulvene er ansvarlig for knapt 2% av husdyr tap i #Norge @erna_solberg @VidarHelgesen #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

65. Ulven er en berikelse for mange nordmenn som setter pris på å være i stand til å oppleve naturen i sin fulle kompleksitet  #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

66. Det virker som norske bønder har en vendetta mot ulver som ikke er forankret i virkeligheten, men snarere frykt og hat! #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves  

67. Beslutningen om å kjøpe 70% Norges ulver kan ikke være i samsvar med Bernkonvensjonen, lovforslag og forskrifter Predators #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves  

68. Den ulvebestanden er allerede svært liten og kritisk truet. For å utrydde 70% av slike sårbare arter er sjokkerende. #SaveOurWolves Tweet4Wolves 

69. En av pakkene som er valgt for utryddelse har aldri angrepet noen husdyr for 4 år den har levd i Letjenna! @erna_solberg  #SaveOurWolves  Tweet4Wolves
