    Default Praise the Swedish King!

    Praise the Swedish King!

    Carl XVI Gustaf, the king of Sweden, wants to start wolf hunting. Right now the population of the endangered wolf is around 150 individuals. The king thinks that they are growing too many. He said this during an interview after his yearly royal moose hunt in central Sweden today

    The hunt, which is the country's biggest hunt with dogs, had 100 participants, including the king's son, prince Carl Philip, who shot one moose. The whole team shot 23 moose by lunchtime.

    This is in Swedish but you can still watch the video.

    I feel this situation is very ironic since he is the Board of Trustees chairman of WWF Sweden and is considered to be a nature lover.

    The upper classes cannot have a good time unless it involves killing something or shagging it, preferably both!
    My own family were all hunting, fishing, shooting and horse racing - probably why I have nothing to do with them and live like a gnome in the woods with a Yorkshire biker.

    If you just enjoy shagging does that make you middle class?

    Does the king not know that the wolf is no more responsible for being born a wolf anymore than the king is responsible for being born a king.

    However, I would say that the wolves are far more useful. They keep nature in balance.

    What do kings do these days?

    Wow! I know what lets hunt all the wolves to extinction so they cannot rise against us, kill our children and rape our wives and have little hybrid babies.

    I dunno if there are more than 150 royal families left in the world, however any more then 0 is too many. Anyone fancy a good hunt?
    The taste of anything in my mouth for 5 seconds does not equate to the beauty and complexity of life.

    I hate this sort of thing, wolves are beautiful creatures who have every right to be in their natural habitats. The same is true of bears and so many others. I personally feel that those animals that would ordinarily be free roaming in this country but now largely exist only captivity but are suitable for re-introduction to the wild should be, an example would be the European bear and wolf. These animals were and are important in their habitats. Though I guess not everyone is comfortable with England having bears and wolves again, maybe they shouls think about what was here as recently as a hundered years ago.
    p.s. I'm not in favour of transporting animals from other countries etc to re introduce them
