In Lower Saxony, the shooting down of three wolves is currently approved. These are two animals from the Uelzen district and one animal from the Emsland district.
After repeated livestock tears in the Uelzen region, the state, together with the local district there, examined an exceptional permit from the strict protection of the wolf in accordance with the Federal Nature Conservation Act, the Lower Saxony Environment Ministry said.
The “experts” from the Ministry of the Environment have assessed the situation in detail, taking into account the national development of the population, and have come to the conclusion that an exception is required for one wolf from three herds, according to the press release.
The Lower Saxony Environment Minister said: “In recent years, the shepherds have made great efforts to protect their herds from wolf attacks. The state supports them as much as possible. However, if wolves overcome these protective measures, we must not leave the livestock farmers helpless. (!!!)”
According to the ministry, the shooting permit is valid until June 30, 2020. In the case of the she-wolf from the Escheder herd, enforcement is to be suspended from April 15 to May 15, 2020 for animal welfare reasons in order to ensure the care of possible puppies born this spring.
+++Update: After a shot, the hunter should remain as anonymous as possible – so that he is not threatened, said the Ministry of Environment.
And I mean…The federal government, the strongest lobby for farmers and hunters, had made it easier for wolves to be shot a year ago in order to prevent tearing of grazing animals such as sheep or calves.
According to this shameful bill, wolves can be killed even if it is unclear which animal attacked a flock of sheep, for example. It should be possible to shoot wolves until there is no more damage, even if it kills an entire herd of wolves.
In 2018 alone there were eight illegal killing of wolves in Germany, since 2000 there have been a total of 43. There is massive poaching against the wolf, with the support of the state. So far, never a single murder of Wolf has been punished!
The natural hunters, i.e. the wolves, do belong here.
They were at home here before the farmers discovered factory farming.
They are carnivorous animals, which means they have to eat meat and have always done it.
Humans can survive without meat. After the last events, it would make sense to avoid meat.
Farmers, on the other hand, are primarily concerned with maximizing profit and not with the well-being of their herds.
Protection fences and herds protection dogs mean additional costs and the animals killed by the wolf are a loss for them; because with these animals – who keep them in farms under miserable conditions and die a violent death in the slaughterhouse anyway – no profit can be made.
That is why the corrupt German politicians are now approving an order to destroy the wolf.
But they allow to continue animal factories as usual.
