SE: Hunting land lease holder wants to shoot wolves
April 19, 2011

An application for a licensed protective hunt and three complaints against the dog owner who let the dog run unleashed have been made with respect to Sunday's wolf attack in Rörmossen which stirs up emotions, writes Norrtelje Newspaper on the Net.

Claes Bäckström, hunting leaseholder of part of Riala is his territory, posted the letter about the hunting of wolves to the Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday. The application is "obvious" he says, and argues that the five dogs attacked since the wolves arrived.

Complaints about the dog owner will not be investigated when the laws according to the police are so vague.

I hate it when people insist that wolves should be killed in a certain area. But, on the other hand, the wolves did kill four dogs, but since dogs are very closely related to wolves, then if the dog was in a wolf territory, the wolf would had seen it as another wolf, and attacked. They would probably pay no attention to the humans, but if we are to fix these problems, then there should be a way to tell where wolf territories are, in my opionion, a sign would do nicely and would prevent more accidents in the near future.

These issues can be quite complex. I also agree that if wolves attack house pets, it is not necessarily a legitimate reason to eliminate them -- it is to be expected after all, considering that wolves are territorial wild animals, and they can view a domestic dog as prey, or an intruder. However, if wolves turn their attentions to human beings and pose danger and threat to human life and health, the tables will turn. In that case, wolves would be dangerous, and should be shot in order to prevent casualties.

There should be a good reason those wolves attacked on them.

Dogs attract wolves, and wolf-dog encounters are usually hostile. Wolf packs defend their territory quite vigorously from outsiders, be it dog, another wolf, a coyote, or even human.

Well did the dog die??? If he did then it was the hunters fault because he is one of the ppl tht take the wolves food so i wouldn't blame the wolves! I mean tht they were only trying to defend whats' theirs because ppl are also taking land from wolves, not realizing what they are doing to the wolves! :(

Well, it's peace at mind to hear that the wolves aren't yet a danger to the residents. I'm kind of iffy one when the wolves get to a point to when they need to be eliminated though. If they attack a dog don't they pose a threat to humans?
You can lead a horse to water, and you can lead a horse into water, and you can swim around with the horse and have fun.

The wolves have attacked five dogs. There was no specific mentioning whether they have also been in close proximity to humans, but it is a possibility that they will start to condition to humans, as well. Wolves are behaviorally very flexible and easily adaptable -- they can go habituated rather swiftly.
