Abstract
The existence and extension of the Swedish wolf population is a highly

In January 2010 the Swedish government issued permission to hunt 28 out of
the total population of approximately 200 wolves. This license hunt brought about and created even more attention to the wolf issue.
On the one hand, protection and care for biological diversity is put forward as an argument in favor for a well-established wolf population. On the other hand, the living conditions for people on the country side and the wolf’s effect on game is put forward as arguments for a restricted wolf population.

On the other hand, the living conditions for people on the country side and the wolf’s effect on game is put forward as arguments for a restricted wolf population.
What by the first look seems like a relatively marginal political issue
concerning environmental and countryside politics turns out to be a much more complex issue. After taking a closer look at the debate and the main figures involved a picture of a complex political issue takes shape that evokes strong feelings and connotations about the key relationship between man and nature.
The purpose of this essay is to try to understand the wolf issue as a
political issue by studying the different perspectives of the relationship between man and nature put forth by the main figures involved in the debate. (Less)
