Wolf eradication in the Alps: European Wilderness Society on Italian TV and radio
Rai Südtirol TV Pro & Contra
Max Rossberg joined the TV-debate from Rai Südtirol in their program ‘Pro und Contra’. The question is whether the Wolf returning to Südtirol, the Austrian and the Bavarian Alps should be eradicated and the alps turned into a wolf-free zone. This is what the farming associations and the hunting organizations in these countries are demanding. Max Rossberg discussed this with Siegfried Rinner, the director of the Südtiroler farmers’ association.
