DISGUSTING!!!! WILD wolves and bears are being slaughtered just to protect herds of reindeer destined for posh Brits’ dinner tables, The Sun can reveal. Upmarket London store Fortnum & Mason is flogging tins of reindeer pâté for £20 as an “indulgent winter treat”. The cans, emblazoned with “relative of Rudolf”, on the labels, use meat from animals bred on the icy plains of mid and north Sweden by indigenous Sami herders. But outraged conservationists say scores of wolves, lynx and brown bears are being butchered in legalised hunts to protect the herds — and the £15million a year reindeer industry. Last winter, a pregnant wolf was killed with her partner four weeks before she was due to give birth to five pups. She was gunned down by marksmen in a helicopter after straying into reindeer areas during the calving season. Wildlife groups fear the creatures could soon be endangered.
