- We give him a medal because he dared to do it.
so says Karl Nielsen, who is a board member of the association Ulvefrit Denmark.
the Association has started a nationwide collection for the benefit of Mourits Troldtoft, which in september 2019 was convicted of illegally shoot and kill a wolf in Siberia.
- We gather in to sweeten his life a little bit, for there is no doubt that the family has been very much unpleasant through, among other threats, says Karl Nielsen to DR P4 Midt & Vest.
the Association would like to give Mourits Troldtoft a gavecheck and a gold medal.
With the option to donate money for the purpose of several sites would the association will soon be able to get together a good sum, which meant money, I thought Karl Nielsen. It was possible to donate via Facebook, indsamlingssitet Caremaker.dk, at Ulvefrit Denmark's own website and also via a couple of can be around in the Aa city.
But the collection was not well received by all.
Shortly after, that it was set in of parkland on Facebook and Caremaker.dk, closed both actors collection again.
It is the association Ulvetid, which is holdningsmæssig contrast to the Ulvefrit Denmark, who has had a finger in the game.
- We believe that it is completely unacceptable to start a collection for a, which actually is convicted of having committed a crime against nature, " says president Esther Holzendorff to DR P4 Midt & Vest.
But the collection in honor of Mourits Troldtoft is legal. It is approved by the Indsamlingsnævnet.
You may like to assemble into one that has already been convicted of something illegal - and where the action is completed, says chairman of the Indsamlingsnævnet Christian Lundblad.
- If instead you support something that is on the way to be committed as the illegality, you are not allowed to gather into. But they have not assembled into, that he can buy the gun or cartridges, he explains.
the DR has several times tried to get an explanation from the Caremaker and Facebook on why they have closed the collection, but it is not managed.
According to Christian Loiborg, editor of the social media in the DR, it is not unusual that Facebook remove the content.
In the instant case, Facebook probably assessed that there is a violated some of the provisions of community law, they have to define yourself.
- Facebook has so many rules. Among other things, they are not so happy when shelves crime, and it is indeed a criminal act, he has been convicted for it. I will shoot at it like this for some motives, they go in and interpret on, says Christian Loiborg.
if the collection is legal, it is only Facebook itself, that determines, what must be on the platform, says the editor.
- I do not think that Facebook relate to what the Danish indsamlingsnævn says or does not say.
the Collection has divided the waters in the local community in the Aa.
the hardware Store John smith has a indsamlingsbøsse standing on the counter in his shop in the Aa.
'Medal and check for Mourits Troldtoft' is inscribed on it.
- My wife and I have had the business for 44 years and we have never said no to anyone, so there have been a great many can be here, " says John Sorensen to DR P4 Midt & Vest.
According to the isenkræmmeren he thought no further about what it was, there were gathered when he said yes.
But he's going to do in the future, he stresses.
- I must just say, that there has been havoc since it was hung up. It is absolutely grotesque, what I have heard - about what I'm in for a bad guy, because I've set it up, " says John Sørensen.
He has received almost 100 submissions, after indsamlingsbøssen got its place on the disk.
- All negative, except some few, who have put money in bøssen, says John Sørensen.
you run the Risk that it goes out of business?
- It has already been done. On our facebook page we had five stars until Monday. I don't even think that we have a single back now - so many have been inside and say something negative about the company here.
Mourits Troldtoft themselves are happy with the support that the collection is an image.
- It shows that others think as I do. It shows that I'm not out on a or other grasslands, where I was the only one who thinks that it was uncomfortable. There are many who have expressed that it was it, that needed to be done, he says to DR P4 Midt & Vest.
Despite the adversity, choose the association Ulvefrit Denmark to continue the collection through their own website and the physical can be in the city.
