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!

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.

I would and have not purchased any product with faux fur or real fur...........my love of wolves is incalcutable.

I would have never dreamt of buying reindeer products even without signing this pledge. This is such a short sighted policy, as predator & prey keep nature in balance and without one the other disappears.

Every animal should be able to live a long, healthy and safe life in an environment that is suited to their specific needs - away from selfish, greedy, thoughtless, cruel humans. God bless ALL animals! xo xo xo xo xo xo.

Mankind condemns itself ~*~ Ecclesiastes 3:19-21 Man's fate is like that of the animals;the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath;man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place;all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?"

What kind of human thinks this is okay to do, a human that can do this to an innocent animal has the heart of the devil. And there are just too many of them walking this earth. Animals were not put here for us to wear, eat, torture and kill. I am sorry for the generations coming into this world.
