Where have all the wolves gone.
The forest weeps in silence.

Stop the extinction policy now.
Shame on Norway.

4. Situasjonen 4 #wolves i #Norge er allerede dystre. Bare 5% av landet er utpekt en “ulv sone”, der dyrene er “lov” til å eksistere. #SaveOurWolves

5. The situation 4 #wolves in Norway is already grim. Just 5% of the country is designated a “wolf zone”, in which the animals are/were “allowed” to exist. #Norway shamefully culls wolves to strikingly low levels. #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves pic.twitter.com/AuVhKSaqub #SaveOurWolves

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

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

8. Virkeligheten er at ulvene er ansvarlige for omtrent 1.5% av det totale estimerte tapet av sauer i #Norge @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare
La #ulven leve! Stopp utrydningspolitikken #SaveOurWolves

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

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

11. Beslutningen om å drepe 75% Norges ulver kan ikke være i samsvar med Bernkonvensjonen, lovforslag og forskrifter Predators #SaveOurWolves #verdtåbevare @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen @NorwayUS @NorwayMFA @NorwayUN pic.twitter.com/SFsbOEJg8K #SaveOurWolves

12. Den ulvebestanden er allerede svært liten og kritisk truet. For å utrydde 75% av slike sårbare arter er sjokkerende. #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen Shame on #Norway pic.twitter.com/D90cio7arv #SaveOurWolves

17. Shamefully, Norway is exterminating 75% of the the tiny wolf population whose territories are entirely in #Norway – a move that will be disastrous for the dwindling members of the species in the wild.#SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare @erna_solberg pic.twitter.com/iSK2Aj82y9 #SaveOurWolves

18. Skamfullt, utrydder Norge 75% av den lille ulvspopulasjonen, hvis territorier helt er i #Norge – et trekk som vil være katastrofalt for de svindende medlemmene av arten i naturen. #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #Verdtåbevare @olaelvestuen @erna_solberg pic.twitter.com/iSK2Aj82y9 #SaveOurWolves

29. Norway’s image as the saviour of the ecosystem is completely undermined by this slaughter of #wolves @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #verdtåbevare La ulven leve! #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 pic.twitter.com/7Cysk6O9RQ #SaveOurWolves

30. Utryddelsen av 75% av Norges bosatt ulvspopulasjon er en indikasjon på den brutale behandlingen som rovdyr mottar i dette landet @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen La ulven leve! #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 pic.twitter.com/drXqEmnvI1 #SaveOurWolves

Please send tweets 32, 33, and 34 together, and in order, as they are connected. Preferably, create a thread, starting with tweet number 32.

32. .@olaelvestuen @erna_solberg Yearly over 2 million sheep are released into the forests & mountains of Norway without supervision, with just a tiny percentage of them killed by wolves #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 1/ #SaveOurWolves

33. 2/ Farmers are richly compensated for their losses creating an impetus for inflated depredation numbers. #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare pic.twitter.com/SFsbOEJg8K #SaveOurWolves

34. 3/ Furthermore, most wolves that depredate sheep in Norway migrate from Sweden from April to June; therefore the number of breeding wolves in Norway has minimal impact on the extent of damage to sheep in Norway. #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves

Please also send tweets 35 and 36 together or thread:

35. 1/ In 2016, an estimated 104,500 sheep disappeared during grazing season; approximately 17,550 of these were compensated as killed by *all* carnivores (bears, lynx, wolverines, wolves and golden eagles) @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves

36. 2/ Remainder of loss likely caused by accidents, infections/diseases, parasites, dogs, foxes & poisonous plants. Approximately 1,600 sheep were compensated as lost to wolf depredation, just over 1.5% of total estimated sheep loss @olaelvestuen @erna_solberg #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #SaveOurWolves

37a. Ulven er oppført som “kritisk truet” på den norske røde listen for arter 2015. ulvene er de minste tallrike av alle norske pattedyr, og som sådan er pattedyrsarten mest truet av utryddelse i norge som fortjener beskyttelse, ikke utryddelse #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves

37b. Ulven er oppført som “kritisk truet” på den norske røde listen for arter 2015. ulvene er de minste tallrike av alle norske pattedyr, og som sådan er pattedyrsarten mest truet av utryddelse i norge som fortjener beskyttelse, ikke utryddelse #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 @erna_solberg #SaveOurWolves

38. Norge har både juridisk og etisk ansvar for å sikre en levedyktig ulvspopulasjon innenfor sine grenser. Å hevde at vi kan utrydde norske ulver fordi den russiske befolkningen er levedyktig, er avskyelig @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 pic.twitter.com/RHyvpcXlDJ #SaveOurWolves

39. The wolf is an enrichment for many Norwegians who appreciate being able to experience nature in its full complexity @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen @NorwayMFA #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 Stopp utrydningspolitikken. La ulven leve! pic.twitter.com/1PfnISwf25 #SaveOurWolves

Please send tweets 43, 44 and 45 together or thread:

43. 1/ @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen Numerous studies on.nrdc.org/2DrRvJM of black bears, mountain lions, and wolves have shown that predation of livestock actually *increases* after a predator cull. #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves

44. 2/ What’s more, @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen a study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B found that institutionalized culls can trigger more poaching of that species. Stopp utrydningspolitikken. La ulven leve! #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 pic.twitter.com/3ZlLTF3EUV #SaveOurWolves

45. 3/When a government sanctions killing a protected species, the perceived value of each individual of that species may decline; liberalizing wolf culling may send a negative message about the value of wolves/acceptability of poaching: bit.ly/24LtfqF #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #SaveOurWolves

46. The licensed culling of the two wolf packs in Julussa & Osdalen, which are now extinguished, because they are/were not “genetically important” and belong to a common Scandinavian population, though they caused no harm is scandalous @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #SaveOurWolves

47. Pls consider the essentiality @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen bit.ly/2cKp1wt La ulven leve! Stopp utrydningspolitikken! #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #SaveOurWolves

49. Norway’s #Wolf Policy and the Bern Convention on #Wildlife: Avoiding the “Manifestly Absurd” @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen bit.ly/2mHEepx #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #verdtåbevare La ulven leve. Stopp utrydningspolitikken! #SaveOurWolves

50. When #Norway ratified the Bern Convention in 1986 it did not avail itself of the opportunity to file a reservation with regard to #wolves @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #verdtåbevare #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 La ulven leve. Stopp utrydningspolitikken! pic.twitter.com/xhfYUPwCET #SaveOurWolves

51. As the wolf is listed as a “strictly protected fauna species” in Appendix II of the Convention, #Norway is under an obligation, inter alia, to prohibit any killing of #wolves #SaveOurWolves #verdtåbevare pic.twitter.com/csgLdJEFFx #SaveOurWolves

52. #Norway is under an obligation as stipulated in Article 9 of the Convention, that the culling of #wolves “will not be detrimental to the survival of the population concerned.” #SaveOurWolves @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen pic.twitter.com/xhfYUPwCET #SaveOurWolves

53. Other relevant provisions of the Bern Convention require Norway, inter alia, to ensure a certain #wolf population level, protect wolf habitat, and outlaw particular means of killing @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves pic.twitter.com/RHyvpcXlDJ #SaveOurWolves

54. Article 2 of the Bern Convention: “The Contracting Parties shall take requisite measures to maintain wild flora and fauna at, or adapt it to, a level which corresponds in particular to ecological, scientific and cultural requirements.” @erna_solberg #SaveOurWolves #SaveOurWolves

55. Article 2 of the Bern Convention: “The Contracting Parties shall take requisite measures to maintain wild flora and fauna at, or adapt it to, a level which corresponds in particular to ecological, scientific and cultural requirements.” @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 #SaveOurWolves

56. In a world with so few #wolves, perhaps a better guide to the risk they pose is a scientific study in which humans approached wolves 125 times in Scandinavia. Researchers found no occasions of aggressive behaviour… #SaveOurWolves🇳🇴 @erna_solberg https://t.co/XzDXJ1Syr6 #SaveOurWolves

57. #Ulvejakt without ethical anchorage @olaelvestuen @erna_solberg

The statistics from 2017 show that most inhabitants want wolves in Norwegian nature! #LaUlvenLeve Stopp utrydningspolitikken nå #SaveOurWolves

58. #SaveOurWolves .@olaelvestuen It’s insulting 2 the world that one of the richest countries, #Norway, cannot have more than 50 #wolves, considering Botswana, Mozambique & other extremely poor countries in Africa, are working very hard 2 keep their #lions https://t.co/Ssx2LrWtlG #SaveOurWolves

3. No one should have the power to intentionally extirpate any species from the landscape.

To have the authority to exterminate the majority of a critically #endangeredspecies, and to do so, is scandalous @erna_solberg #RewildYourHeart #SaveOurWolves #Verdtåbevare pic.twitter.com/qZcvC8pKgX #SaveOurWolves

4. Norway’s wolf population has been culled to the critically #endangered level. To eradicate 75% of such a vulnerable species is shocking @erna_solberg @olaelvestuen #SaveOurWolves #verdtåbevare Shame on #Norway Stopp utrydningspolitikken nå! pic.twitter.com/D90cio7arv #SaveOurWolves
