WOLF NEWS AND WOLF-DOG NEWS 8/16/2008
Hi folks. Here is another installment
of the most recent news reports around
the world on Wolves and Wolf-Dogs.
BOSNIAN WOLF AND PUPS MURDERED!
It was revealed to us by Slavica
Beslic, president of EPAR (Esteem
and Protection of Animal Rights)
that a Wolf and her pups here murdered.
Thanks to her, and the organization
Društvo za zaštitu prava Životinja Noa,
or NOA, provided much information on
The murders happened in the municipality
of Sekovici which is in the northeastern
part of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The date around the time it happened
A man by the name of Vladislav Bobar
and his cohort of hunters went to a
Wolf-Den and attacked it.
A Wolf that was a mother didn’t want
to leave out of loyalty to her pups.
They were beaten severely by the
hunters, and then were shot to death
Hunting is illegal in Bosnia, although
there are no protections for Wolves
So through a technicality these men
got away with a terrible crime. Legal
or not, murder shouldn’t happen.
And if hunting is illegal, Wolves should
also get protection. Especially with incidents
like this. There are about 400 Wolves
Bosnia is no stranger to atrocity,
considering the Bosnian War that
happened in 1992-1995 and left
approximately 200,000 people dead.
These types of horrific acts must stop.
And Wolves must be protected in Bosnia.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Even worse is how the media even supported
We must send a message about this issue and
how this violence and horror must end.
A) First write to the Bosnian government
Tell them about this atrocity and how
atrocity in Bosnia must end. Wolves
deserve protection, and these men
who brutally murdered a mother and her
children should be punished. They
clearly were intent on exploiting
legal technicalities. That is they
were skating the line between
hunting and non-hunting. It doesn’t
matter, murder is murder and these
atrocities must end now.
I) Prime Minister and Deputy Ministers of the Government of
Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina:
Here below is a listing of some ministers
you should contact as well.
II) Minister of the Interior
III) Minister of Justice
IV) Minister of Environment and Tourism
V) Secretaries to various officials in Bosnia-Herzegovina Government.
B) Contact the website which reported
on this issue and voice your outrage
at such an atrocity and how Wolves
should have protection.
Here are other newspapers you can contact
Also contact your local newspapers and
other officials about this as well as
Thanks again to Slavica
Beslic, president of EPAR for the tip
OTHER WORLD WOLF NEWS……………………..
USA – Michigan
The Michigan DNR plans to institute
their management plan soon.
A plan that was approved in July
by DNR Director Rebecca Humphries,
who is no friend to the Wolf whatsoever.
The plan is all about ‘managing’ impacts.
The DNR is making a haphazard plan
where they will for one, not use
Non-Lethal Methods Only and PF Ranching
as the norm for preventing livestock issues.
They may very well institute culls of Wolves
in an area or a region if they want to do
so. They also hope that hunters and trappers
will also help them if Wolf population numbers
get ‘too big’.
In otherwords their plan like many,
will be disastrous for Wolves.
Management plans are a system of control
to oppress Animals since Humans still
can’t grasp the concept of living in
harmony and respect with others.
Although their plan claims to have a section
on information and education, and research
you can tell this plan like many in the world
will doom the Wolf.
to their plans and sue them if possible.

DNR Director Rebecca Humphries
She has supported the destruction of Wolves in the past.
Contact the Michigan Government Officials in opposition to this.
Also contact your Senators outside of Wisconsin.
In Sweden the county government of Vast had a meeting
August 14th, in Hjartum where 200 people came to talk about
depredations by Wolves.
Sheep owners told their ‘experiences’ at the meeting
and apparently got tips on how to
prevent livestock depredations.
We hope Non-Lethal Methods and PF Ranching were
a part of the meeting, though we cannot be sure
if they were.
So we need your help to get the word out on them.
First write a comment at the source article below.

Also contact the Swedish Government.
Contact the Swedish Government
urging them to support NLM’s and
PF Ranching. Until
these methods are educated about,
implemented and enforced, this
will not end.
