Responsible ranchers know the benefit of wolves in our eco system, I have a large ranch where coyotes & wolves keep the wild hog population down, when you remove the wolves you have a bigger problem with wild hogs who breed three time a year and destroy your pasture for horses and cattle.

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.

I am another animal rights advocate with a PASSION for WOLVES. WOLVES is one of the many CAUSES I work on. WE must FRIEND each other, NETWORK together in all WOLF GROUPS! WE must UNITE in the FIGHT to SAVE and PROTECT all WOLF SPECIES WORLD WIDE! This has to be a GLOBAL effort on all levels to save these majestic animals on our planet. Because there are HUNTERS, TRAPPERS, and RANCHERS every where that want to their their land from them and just have pure HATRED for them! MAN is the TOP...

MAN is the TOP PREDATOR in the forest now, WE must out smart him in so many ways, first by EDUCATING the youngest children in preschool on up about WOLVES and their ENVIRONMENT. Next, we must teach the RANCHERS that they DO have other OPTIONS to SAVE and PROTECT their LIVESTOCK such as GUARD DOGS, DONKEYS and LLAMAS. WE CAN DO THIS! WE NEED TO PUT WOLVES BACK ONTO THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LISTS IN EVERY COUNTRY!

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....
