The Swedish wolf debate has so far never touched the really big question, which like a giant elephant standing there in the middle of the room. Not until today, then Expressens conductor protruding finger straight into the wound and writes that it is: for us to be able to get a viable wolf population in Scandinavia requires that we stop portal wolves from the northern half of Sweden. Today, namely, everything north of Dalälven forbidden ground for wolves, because it is considered renbetesmark.
And precisely this issue is stone dead politically, because a discussion of the free- and rights of Sweden's indigenous people should have in relation to other Swedish industries are automatically branded as racist and / or racial (origin)ethnic group. But in practice, it's just yet another debate on domestic vs predator, as Varmland.
The difference is that this case of reindeer. There are upwards of 300.000 such (about as many as the number of moose) that moves freely over a wide grazing area covering the northern parts of Norway, Sweden and Finland (while the wolves can be counted in tens and notoriously live shoved down in central Sweden). In total, the reindeer grazing area 54 percent of the country's land area - and there will not be any wolfterritories, under the Environment Andreas Carlgren (although he obviously is not alone in having made this decision).
If you study the map above showing the wolf distribution in the world, especially in Russia and Europe, you can clearly see which ones are the natural hunting grounds for the species. But in northern Scandinavia, there is apparently a big hole. I detta område, som omfattar hela Nordkalotten, är vargen utrotad sedan länge, och kontakten med de stora vargpopulationerna i Ryssland är bruten. Och eventuella nya individer som vågar sig på att invandra österifrån har minimala chanser att överleva om de inte snabbt och målmedvetet springer gatlopp från Haparanda till Säffle.
