Farmers and Forest Owners Demand Cull of Wolves, Boar and Deer

Several organizations representing farmers and forest owners have launched a petition urging the authorities to reduce the populations of deer and large carnivores. The petition has been signed by 51 organizations and will be sent to the government, parliament, European Commission and European Parliament. Although calls to reduce these populations have been made before, the latest petition comes a day after a pack of wolves killed more than 40 sheep and goats in a village in the Primorska region, west. Petitioners argue large carnivores have been overprotected over the past decades and the populations of deer and wild boar have excessively reproduced, which has severely affected the countryside.
