How We Saved Tru Calling

Posted by in Animals

One day in the beginning of June, when the birds were singing and the sun was shining, we turned our cows and calves out to pasture. We expected it to be a calm and joyful day since all of us loved to see our cattle run around after the long winter which they spend in the barn. Even my big sister had come home that day with her little girl to share the cheerful moment. Everything went well when we let the old cows out from the cement and timber…read more

Watch “Snow Wolf Family and Me!”

Posted by in Animals

I highly recommend that you watch “Snow Wolf Family and Me!” It’s a fantastic documentary about the Arctic wolves. The wildlife filmmaker Gordon Buchanan goes to the Canadian Arctic to search for the Arctic wolves that never have seen people before in hope to get a better understanding for the wolves. He lives in a tent for a few months, and when he has been there for a while, a white wolf family turns up and show interest in him. The curious wolves check out his equipment and even him!…read more

Man Transporting Cows got Killed

Posted by in Animals

There are about 80% Hindus in India and less than 20% Muslims. Hindus consider the cows sacred, and for many, it’s taboo to eat beef so many states in India has banned or restricted the killing of cows and to sell beef. There are vigilante groups among the Hindus because they are enraged over the treatment of cows. So, at the beginning of April, they attacked a Muslim man who had been transporting cows to slaughter. The police confirmed later that the Muslim man died of the fatal injuries. A…read more

Pregnant Reindeer shot by Poachers

Posted by in Animals

The reindeer owner Henrik Andersson brought his reindeer to Sundomskogen outside of Luleå earlier this year because it’s easier for the reindeer to feed there during the winter. A few weeks ago, he discovered that at least two pregnant reindeer were missing because there were at least two calves that were calling for their mommies. All the reindeer were intimidated when he found them. The reindeer owner said it could be more than two that got injured and killed; he isn’t sure. There were lots of blood in the snow…read more

Say No to Slaughter!

Posted by in Animals

Many, many, many animals get slaughtered by having their throats cut off, meaning they bleed to death. The poor animals spend their last waking moments to gasp for breath, and they fight to be able to stand while the blood pours out from their throats. To get the throat cut off like that is extremely painful for the animals. During the time it takes for the poor animal to get unconscious it suffers from the cut, the loss of blood, and when the blood comes down to the lungs, they…read more

The Politicians do Nothing

Posted by in Animals

It’s with sadness in my heart that I tell you that another wolf, a female, got killed here in Sweden on February 15. They were allowed to hunt the wolves until that date, February 15, so I have been keeping track of if the wolf in Dalarna that I told you earlier about in my blog post “Wolves get hunted with snowmobiles and helicopters in Sweden” was going to make it. I thought that she was going to survive, but sadly she was shot the last day of the hunt….read more

Are there Camels in Sweden?

Posted by in Animals

Yes, there are around 100 camels here, but Sweden is not a natural habitat for camels, they are only here because people have brought them here in order to use them for their own pleasure.

Camels enjoy dry and open habitats like steppes, semi-deserts, and deserts.

Roe Deer Caught in Snare

Posted by in Animals

For about ten days ago a person reported to the police that he had seen a dead roe deer in Borgafjäll, in the north of Sweden. The poor roe deer was hanging in a snare! When the police came, the dead animal was gone, so someone had picked up the body. The police confiscated the snare since it’s illegal to use. Hunters are allowed to hunt foxes and white grouses with a snare if they have a permit but that’s a smaller one. The one that the roe deer was…read more
