The wolf and all other animals have the right to live in their natural range. We think that every species has its own value, whether they are "useful" or not for man. Sweden has both the space for – and afford to have – predators in our nature.
Why actually predators?
We think that every species has its own value, whether they are "useful" or not for man. The wolf and all other animals have the right to live in their natural range.
Predators such as wolves have a role in nature's interaction, ecological. The wolf feeds in Sweden primarily on elk (to about 95 percent), but also some deer. Therefore, it competes with humans for prey, especially elk. However, we believe that it should be enough for both us and the wolves.
Wolves and other predators takes animals that in turn feed on trees and herbs. The wolves affects both how the prey is moving in the landscape, what they eat and what is saved by vegetation. The wolf also affect the selection of prey, the surviving. The wolf's tracks also occurs dining areas with remnants of prey, which in turn are important food for birds of prey, other predators such as the wolverine and smaller animals and insects.
