For goodness sake! just how many reindeer can 160 wolves kill? and just how often do they attempt to take large prey?

All those 160 are not in Lapland; there are Wolves also in the South. And they can also kill dogs if the dogs are chasing reindeers!

Helinä Sirpa Tughan if the dogs are chasing reindeer, i fully understand if the dog gets shot. it isn't on the herder, either, it's on the dog's owner for not controlling the dog, not training the dog properly, and for allowing it to run at large. it's the same thing over here - were i a sheep farmer or a cattle rancher and some dog is menacing the stock i rely on to keep food on my table, i'm sorry, but dog's gotta go. mind you, i'd try other methods first but then, i like dogs and i'm a...

But you don't mind that our small brothers and sister the reindeer are killed by wolves and you protest that the Sami reindeer holders protect them? You lack logic!

no, sorry - I agree that the finnish wolf should not be hunted - but there IS no wolf hunt this year. destroying the livelihood of an entire culture is not the answer, either.

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....
