Politicians in Helsinki should skin the wolves, set the foxes free and make laws to protect them.

Problem solved, but

....... wise politicians are nowadays rare to find

I was reading that the fur industry is big up there, so that isn't likely.

Unfortunately yes, there have been new sightings here in town, right where we like to hike and let our puppy run free damned.gif
A girl was horseback riding along that road and spotted them. At the same time two of my nephews were sledding at a nearby hill, a few hundred meters away. That's too close for comfort 13.gif

No, that would be just wrong. We should have wolves here, there's always been wolves here, but not this close to people. However barbaric fur farming is, letting the foxes out would be a disaster. They have no survival skills and would probably attract all predators around, such as lynx and wolverines if not wolves. The bears too when they wake up.

Is it possible they are werewolves?

Not to mention the absolute havoc they would wreak on the natural, red forest fox.

Grey squirrels were imported to the UK as fashionable additions to estates, but they soon became the main threat to the survival of the native red population. I would assume it would end up in similar fashion.

Oh yeah, invasive species are a big problem everywhere... in some cases, like bunny's in Helsinki, it's not a real big deal, but they planted Melaleuca trees (tea tree, paper bark) in Florida, and it created all kinds of problems drying up habitat.
The Brazilian peppers there are really bad as well, choking out all native vegetation.

i assume you have trees,forest there not overly far away..?
if so..
..hunters should find/dwell on tracks/routes/area(s) as to where the wolves are leaving forest/and entering more urban area(s) and deal with it accordingly
..there is a usual starting point/or two-they just need to find that
..wolves are pretty set as to what is their domain,their usual areas per pack
..after what those wolves did to those foxes in cages, they've got it coming.
..too close to the nephews as well

hunters where i am would've already been on it in 'clever ways'..just sayin
could be some of yours are thinkin same way about it now & fuck the politicians..

1 permit can go a long way :cough:

We're in dense forest 5 minutes from the house, so it's awfully darn close.
I've seen the tracks myself and have a good idea where they are running, shouldn't be difficult to make a few go away. coffeetime.gif

New tracks on a yard, next to a trampoline, from yesterday. This is a village some 10 km from town.

Local hunters found where they hang out so I think it's just a question of time before they kill one of them.

damned.gif Those tracks are awfully large. The closest they get is about 10 clicks from here. A friend said the old folks have ways of keeping them away, I'll look into that. I'm not sure what it is they do.
