For this reason,: >>>County Board has adopted two decisions concerning culling of wolf in the county
Wolf Association Sweden ( WAS ) appeals and requests an immediate inhibition of protective hunt for the wolf in Sandviken Municipality with case number: 218-6147-15, 218-6189-15, 218-6273-15.
WAS consider that the fact, that the wolf has torn a heifer, and made a companion can not form the basis for culling.
Heifer had been inside pass RAS (Predator-resistant enclosures) it would probably have been no wolves attack and it can not be a novelty in the context that there are wolves in the area why RAS should have been set up long ago.
There is also every dog owner's responsibility to keep such oversee the dog not to cause any inconvenience or himself gets into trouble and this has oversight failure. We know that there are wolves, dogs should be linked.
I paragraf 23 A Hunting Decree can read: "If there is no other satisfactory solution and if it impedes the maintenance of a favorable conservation status of the species' populations in their natural range, decisions on hunting referred to in 23b, 24, 25 and Section 29 notice. "
It is our opinion that it is not fulfilled when approved RAS is set up and when dog owners let dogs run loose in the famous wolf grounds that it was on the lot next to the front door a few meters from the operator's just a task from the dog's handlers, and can not be considered credible.
In addition, our Swedish wolf population highly inbred and each individual is important to a good conservation should be achieved to then shoot the wolves in this haphazard manner is definitely hamper a favorable conservation rather than vice versa.
Pet Owner liability regulated in the Animal Welfare Act: SFS 1988:534 EU additions SFS 2013:419 Animal Protection Ordinance: SFS 1988:539, Oversight of domestic animals: SJVFS 2010:50
Fenced of domestic animals: Measures to prevent damage to domestic animals SLU Viltskadecenter and fences recommendations 2015
And we can not see that this has followed these rules and recommendations to protect their animals.
Therefore protesting WAS now vigorously against the decision to cull and we protest in addition to the fact that hunting must be conducted even if the appeal is why we demand the immediate suspension of the decision.
