Humans are the most inhumane, and most ignorant, salvagely losers that have no control mentally and take it out on Gods creations. There inhumane actions will be in front of God, Satan is waiting for these unrightious ass holes, rot in hell, fuckers!!!

This is a very stupid petition and founded on deep ignorance! Try to change the availability to giving killing wolf licenses would be better. And the suggestion to build barriers for the reindeers are so way out from reality it could come. Reindeers are going free and their areas of movement are enourmous! There are plenty of them and they are not threatened in any way. Reindeer meat, furs, horns and handicrafts items made from the latter are a very important source of income, for some the...

There are plenty of them and they are not threatened in any way. Reindeer meat, furs, horns and handicrafts items made from the latter are a very important source of income, for some the only, for the Sami ancestors of the aboriginals in the Scandinavian countries Norway, Sweden, and Denmark and also in Russia. This is a good but discouraging example of when people without insight, experience of nature or even theoretical knowledge start a world wide petition. Unfortunately there's a lot of people out there who will fall for this because of lack of knowledge or being to lazy to check up facts before they sign... :-(

So there are plenty of wolves? How many? We need facts, not anecdotal opinions. Last I heard, there has yet to be an "official" wolf count. We all know there are indeed plenty of reindeer and plenty of humans - but plenty of wolves - show us some numbers.

Hey, Karen. As of now, there are 0-5 wolves in whole Lapland, and those 5 are from russian flocks, not any flocks in Finlands side. They are killed as soon as sighted. And mostly poached.

Anders, looks like you are not so well informed. As of yesterday, according to the news, norwegian reindeer are dying of hunger and coming over to Finland to graze, and too bad, but we have same problem here, too many reindeer, no food because of overgrazing and size of the herds and no natural enemies (predators) to cull the herds and keep them healthy and herds in manageable size.And actually they are thinking of building new fences along the borders to keep the reindeer separated....

Reindeer herding area in Finland is 36 % of the country, and they kill every wolf, wolverine, lynx and bear there because the feed on reindeer, they think that its better for the animal to die of hunger. So that is the so called free roaming, the animals are weak and sick, need hay that is brought from southern finland, tons of it..that meats environmental footprint is horrible. Not to speak about the threat it forms for other animals, like predators.

This goes for Norway and Sweden as well... just horrible. And the Sami seriously insist they live with mother nature... have never seen natural helicopters or reindeer naturally so overpopulated that thousands of them starve to death each year... BLEAH!

People, please! You don't know the origin of the pictures - are they even from Lapland? And what about the reindeerkeepers, the only indigenious people in the EU? Should they just stop protecting their reindeers because of some cute wolves? Wolves are predators and there's enough of them in Russia. Seriously. Many reindeerkeepers have already stopped their traditional living, which has gone on for centuries, because of wolves from Russia that kill all their reindeers. This isn't a black and...

This isn't a black and white questions, so don't make the people in Lapland to some sort of demons. That's childish. And please do buy reindeer meat - it's the most ecological meat in the whole world. Read before you come here and leave your comments.

THE BALANCE OF NATURE IS THEIRS TO LIVE IN NOT FOR US KILLING THEM!

Although I feel for the reindeer herders, losing their animals must be difficult, they must realise that they need to live in harmony with the natural world and predation by wolves however much they dislike this is a part of that. A balance needs to be struck by the Finnish government to prevent damage to the environment by excessive numbers of reindeer and to ensure the survival of wolves which play a very vital part in the ecosystem of this region.

Andy is right. Humans are a disgusting and ignorant species. No respect for other animals. All we do is use and abuse. I hope we pay the price sooner than later because most of us deserve extinction. The arrogance to think we can do whatever the hell we want to other animals.

Believe it or not, those torturers who let their reindeer starve to death by thousands each year and drive many other animals into extinction, actually call themselves related to Native Americans and 'true children of mother nature'... and the world is dumb enough to believe them....
