Norway plans to cull more than two-thirds of its wolf population
September 16, 2016 - Norway
is planning to cull more than two-thirds of its remaining wolves in a
step that environmental groups say will be disastrous for the dwindling
members of the species in the wild.
There are estimated to be about 68 wolves remaining in the wilderness
areas of Norway, concentrated in the south-east of the country, but

The government did not reply to a request from the Guardian for comment.
Under the arrangements, 24 wolves will be shot within the region of

pointed to settlements by the Norwegian parliament in 2004 and 2011 that
stipulated populations of carnivores must be allowed to co-exist with
“This decision must be stopped,” said Silje Ask Lundberg, chair of
Friends of the Earth Norway. “With this decision, three out of six
family groups of wolves might be shot. We are calling on the minister of
environment to stop the butchering. Today, Norway should be ashamed.”
