The Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland have killed their wolf pack in order to make way for the more "trendy" Scandinavian wolves they have brought in to replace them. Mad

There is no mention of this on their own website, but the way that they "big up" the Scandinavian wolves that they brought in from Holland lets you know their thinking.

The solution at hand (killing more wolves) makes one wonder what century our government is operating in.

Gunrunner, this is horrible.  PukeI've never heard of something being done like that before.  Let us know if there is anymore news on this.  There should be a huge public outcry. MadBroken Heart

You'd think with a species so recently off the endangered list they would be able to find somewhere to put them.

A bit more has come up on the BBC news site:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/highlands_and_islands/5004766.stm

 

But experts said the six animals had to be euthanised because they were "not portraying their natural behaviour".

 

Well fancy that? Captive wolves in a zoo environment not portraying natural behaviour. Wow How shocked am I?

 

Not at all. Mad

I hope the public doesn't swallow their lame excuse for ending the Wolves life's.  What is the matter with these people?  Sounds like this news was leaked out, doesn't it and now they are trying to say it was the Wolves fault.  How will they prevent these new Wolves from not following the same path as the former inhabitants.  Oh, I'm boiling here.Mad  What a travesty.
