Recently since mid year 2013 already nine wolves were killed with the persons in question claiming the right to kill in terms of the amended Hunting Ordinance Section 28.
This law enables the killing of wolves when pets are attacked or when people are being threatened by the presence of a wolf (self defense). However, this amended law opened the door to wolf baiting, using 'hunting dogs' as bait to lure wolves into attack, thus making it legal for the owner of the dog to kill the wolf in terms of this law. To amend this section 28 to make it impossible for dog owners to use. To establish wolf hot spots where dogs may not be unleashed and to police and investigate incidents thoroughly to determine whether a crime was committed by intentionally releasing dogs in known wolf territory to lure and kill wolves.

Sweden's wolves are under siege from various different sources. Help us to help them.
