no cull of pregnant moose in Sweden

  • by: wildlife defenders

In March 2013, a horrible crime against nature was commited in the province of Westrobothnia (Västerbotten) in northern Sweden. The government of Westrobothnia along with the Swedish Enviornmental Protection Agency issued a cull to intentionally kill 2 full-term pregnant moose cows and 7 calves in a wildlife conservation area cause they were considered as having done "too much damage to the forest". Locals, including hunters, objected to the cull. But it did happen anyway. The moose fetuses was still alive when they were ripped out of their mothers wombs, and thrown into a pile in the snow. The Swedish Hunters Association has called the event barbaric.

Please do never let this happen again, intentionally shooting full-term pregnant animals has no place in a modern society
