Thanks houndy and Rob for your interest.

Dogs(Hounds) and Wolves this is my live.

I have many years donated for UK organisation "Greyhound in need" , the money was
for old racing dogs (Greyhounds and Galgos) in Spain for food and veterinary.

In the last year I have donated 500 EURO for a project from Vladimir Bologov for
the Russian Wolves in the European Taiga.

Unfortunately are the wolves not protected in Russia.

Link to the web site (in English) for more informations: www.russianwolves.org/index.php?action=0



Also, the UK Wolf conservation supported by projects from Vladimir Bologov in Russia

Well done Joerg, wish I could boast of having done as much. Charities for ex racing dogs such as Greyhounds is a very good cause as they tend to be thrown out or killed once their racing days are over.

I wont take that personally...but I could say it is a bit of a generalization..and unfair... :whistle:
Not to mention that the hunter is as within his rights to regard them as vermin as you are to regard them as beautiful creatures.. B)

Hi Dr. Grumpy, you definitly should not take it personally.
I think there should be enough game in the forests in Switzerland and hopefully in Scotland that we all could share it with this beautiful creatures.
It is my personal opinion, we have this discussions also in Austria but unfortunatly for me we don`t have wolfs at the moment in our country, but they have also shoot one some years ago.
Have a nice evening.

I would like to know why the Wolf was shot?

Was it killed by a farmer who was protecting his stock in which case there are other ways to do this.

Was it shot by someone who had a permit to cull in which case fair enough if the Wolf numbers are getting out of hand and the cull was sanctioned by the authorities.

Or was it just killed by somebody who just shot it because they viewed it as vermin in which case I agree, that person is totally ignorant and stupid and I could throw in many more adjectives and depletives to describe them but refrain from doing so as I don't want to get kicked off this forum!

:laugh: Well said Robb...on all points...what gets me though is that we all veiw things differently...and do we not all have a right to our opinions... :whistle:
I personally do not agree with certain political parties...but I beleive that in a democracy,each party has a right to hold it's policies and be represented without being slated for holding a contravertial opinion... :P
Just because somebody likes to look at pornography,does that give those who dont like it the right to call them perverts? :P
The re-introduction of wolves,like Beavers is a very emotive issue..not everyone holds the same veiw...and nor should they...
If the powers that be wish to protect the wolf by law..that would stop some but not all these shooting incidents...but as in Scotland,with some protected species..open the door to more underhand methods of control...such as poisoning... :X

These decimated species have just as much right to life on this planet as humans do. If we democratically decide to give a species protection to recover then anyone shooting them or poisoning them is committing a criminal act and should be prosecuted under law.

I agree that someone choosing to look at pornography should be permitted to so long as its not at the expense of unwilling parties or children or animals. If they're called peverts then its only by the minded, unenlightened peoples.

I think we should live and let live and that includes Wolves, Bears, Wild Boar, Lynx and Scottish wildcats etc etc.

I agree that they can't be prosecuted but I don't believe that it's "fair game". It's certainly morally not right.

The American Indians respected the Wolf as a valued spirit. They lived on Buffalo and owned Horses and both of these were undoubtable targetted by Wolves but if you had said that the Wolves should be killed to protect their stock and Buffalo they certainly would not have agreed with that.
