  • Jeez, people. Wolves from Ellesmere island where there haven’t been humans. These wolf packs have never been hunted, smelled men just a few times, and don’t see humans as a threat. As a consequence, they don’t attack humans, and some packs can even accept human daily presence if it’s not invaded. Elsewhere, where wolves know to fear humans like every other animal due to human cruelty and bloodlust, they are afraid and see us as a threat, but even then they don’t attack humans, it’s somewhat not in their nature. Their diet is deer-like and goat-like animals, including some hares and such. Norway has plenty, so they shouldn’t be in such a hunger to attack humans. If we were just a bit warmer towards nature and wouldn’t be cruel, you would be surprised how much humans can live in harmony with other animals.

  • Nowhere on earth nowhere in history long or short do wolves “live in harmony” around people to the point they don’t need to be managed “KILLED” . Its a lie to say anything different!

  • Just had proof from local news sources that wolves are hunting less than a kilometre from my house in Sollihøgda.I moved here in 2012 and the first few weeks we could hear wolves calling in the night. We see a lot of the other local wildlife and are still annoyed that the attitude towards wolves is so negative from most.

    Then again, in a country where there’s a clear inferiority complex it’s understandable that people are scared of such a skilled hunter.

    So a moose hunter, sat on a post with a high powered rifle feels vindicated in shooting the animal? One common argument is that they pose a direct threat to children, but so do moose and the drunk drivers ferrying kids to their Saturday morning football games.

    Wake up Norway and stop the killing

  • Because the morons who run our country pretty much lack everything when it comes to making judgements.

  • Norway needs to learn some tolerance! & thatgoes for slaughtering whales as well as wolves. Its a very wealthy country so there is no economic downside! They also have a great deal of wilderness which could easily accommodate a sustainable wolf population. this hunting mentality & clincal cold attitude to seriously declining wildlife needs to be stamped out.Its totally unnecessary. The wolf is a healthy part of an ecosystem .Get rid of the hunters ,not the wolves!

  • So do we and in fact more than 75% of Austrians and more than 67% of Germans: We are sure the numbers are similar in all EU countries. But if you read the research we highlighted, the wolf has become the focal point of a much larger discussion revolving around the challenges of urbanisation versus diminishing influence of the rural population. Wolves return to the rural countryside where the young generation is drawn into the cities and that wolf is protected by the same metropolitan population that has “lured” their children away.
