Stop the Sakha Wolf Cull

The Sakha President Yegor Borisov has ordered a cull of 3000 Wolves - due to them preying on the reindeer's of which Sakha herders rely upon for a living.

The original plans were for the cull to take place in a 3 month period from Jan 15th 2013. However, the wolf-hunting season has been extended to the whole year, as the target is to get the wolf population in the region down to 500 - reckoned to be the optimal number. Currently there are estimated to be more than 3,500.
There will be a "six-figure sum" for hunters who bring in the most wolf pelts - a big incentive, as 100,000 roubles (£2,043; $3,280) goes a long way in a region that is famously cold, remote and under-developed.

Please take a moment to sign our petition if you feel that this is unwarranted.

Stop the Sakha Wolf Cull! It is cruel and inhumane. 3000 Wolves should NOT have to be slaughtered because the wolves are doing what they would naturally do (hunt for food) and all in the name of money and profit for the reindeer herders! Preposterous!

We do not agree, and ask you to reconsider this move.


Sincerely,

      Please do not allow this cull to proceed, we are loosing too many species every day as a result of culling, killing, environment etc. Respect the wolf and allow him to roam free!!!
