Save the Brown Bear in Norway

  The Parliament in Norway agree on new predators settlement

Parliamentary groups of the Labour Party, Progress Party, Conservatives, Christian Democrats, the Socialist Left Party, Centre Party and the Liberals signed on 16 June 2011 an agreement on the management of lynx, wolverine, wolf and bear.

The agreement on changes in the management of large predators was considered as a representative suggested Friday the 17th June. It was unanimously adopted. There is given green light from the government. Anybody can just bluff and say their dogs were in danger.   The same can sheep farmers.


To kill a bear has no consequent at all.


They are going to kill more than 30 male bears.  Two has already lost their lives.


Please help the bears and other predators in Norway by signing.


Thank you for your time and support.  


A poem of Karen Lyons Kalmenson


spirit of the bear
 i am the spirit of the bear
and i am in such prolonged,
deep pain
some humans out there
think we bears are here
to entertain
to dance in the circus
to be baited and tormented
or our parts used for medicine
by those humans, demented
we belong to the forests,
to the mountains and streams
this is supposed to be our reality
not just in our dreams
