Please stop hunting of Lynx in Sweden

Sweden has given permission to shoot 110 lynx.

1st March 2011 started the hunt of Lynx in Sweden.  About 100 lynx were killed some of them wounded before the hunters ended their lives.

The hunt will soon start again. 

The reason for the hunt is protection of domestic animals and reindeer. Sami has accused the lynx to kill their reindeer. The facts is the lynx is a very shy animal and hunt rabbits and other small animals.

Despite the fact that lynx roam over an extremely wide territory, there are relatively few people in Sweden who have ever seen one in the wild.

 Please help to stop killings of  the only indigenous wildcat in Scandinavia.

Thank you

      It´s horrible to hunt our beautiful big cat! They are too few and does no harm to us. They just need the food the hunters belive belong to them.
