Update: this petition is now closed.
Last week I posted about the CIWF, which has multiple petitions and other possibilities to support them. Today I came across a different petition to protect animals. I hope you don’t mind me posting these things, since it isn’t related to disabilities, but it is a part of me. So I hope you won’t think I’m spamming, but supporting charities is something I used to do a lot and still do – but in a different manner.
This time it’s about the Norway wolf hunt (as the title already said). There are only 30 wolves left in Norway, so I don’t understand why the government would allow a hunt at all, because I can’t imagine that this is an overpopulation and that they are causing trouble (personally, I’m against hunting anyway). 16 wolves are allowed to die during the hunt, but this is apparently a very popular sport in Norway: 11,000 hunters applied and received a license for this hunt! Making it almost impossible for the wolves to survive this hunt at all…

I find this total madness. There are only 30 wolves left in all of Norway and then they want to kill half of them. I can’t imagine that’s helpful for the population or that there’s a really good reason for this (the government is afraid that there will be a big population in a couple years, but this is too drastic). It’s ridiculous that they allow so many hunters to join.
You can find the petition here.
