A group of activists protested against the lately adopted permission to hunt wolves in Norway. The group gathered in the city centre of Oslo this Saturday with the message to ‘let the wolf live’ and ‘stop the adopted permission now’.

From October 1st, Norway gave permission to hunt 47 wolves, with 13 outside the wolf zone, 24 inside the wolf zone and another 10 elsewhere in the country. “It means that whole, stable, wolf families of Letjenna will be shot, families that have never attacked sheep. Entire packs will be killed with the blessing of Stortinget, the Norwegian government, says one of the organisers of the protest.

The protest was organised by four people, who aim to a ‘viable wolf population in a complete ecosystem’. They demand that the wolf hunt will stop immediately, and that there should be better and updated knowledge about wolves and other predators.

    “Stortinget” is the norwegian parliament, not the governement. A majority of pm’s made the ridiculous decision to hunt down most of the norwegian wolf population.
    More than 5000 protesters gathered in front of the parliament, most of them not normal activists, but common people. The government is now a coalition between the right conservatives “Høyre” and the far right party “Frp”.
