Swedish Hunters Association will not participate in the SVT:s live wolf debate from Torsby in northern Värmland.
- Taking part in the debate program, where the goal often is to find constructive solutions, is directly counterproductive for both human, wolf and a predictable long term management wolf, says Bo Shield, Swedish Hunters Association Secretary General.
SVT:s debate program Opinion Live with TV host Belinda Olsson will as planned be broadcast from a temporary studio in Torsby, 22.00 on Thursday.
Swedish Hunters Association will not participate in the program.
- We are not boycotting SVT, form without debate, says Bo Shield.
- To do the reverse and argue that those affected to adapt to the wolf is counterproductive, says Bo Shield.
Hunters Association's attitude can lead to empty seats in Thursday evening's live broadcast from Stjerne school canteen.
January Spranger, editor of the Opinion Live, think it is regrettable that the Swedish Hunters Association will not stand in the program.
- I think it is unfortunate, but we have others from Hunters Association with, which in any case are members, says Jan Spranger.
