The hunts are restricted, controlled. The animals targeted are most of the time a danger for their own pack. Like a lion too old to reproduce but not letting the place to young ones. They would be shot either way, so why not let people pay a shitload of money that can be used to preserve things?
Yea you pay to kill the ones that are speccificly bred for that, you kill the animal, maybe take a trohpy or just a picture, meat is distributed to locals and money goes to the park so it can pay for the food, medicen, bills etc...its not the best bussnies plan but it works and parks stay alive.
He shot them with his camera. I think they will survive that
The number one threat to endangered and threated species is loss of habitat. No habitat means any means of conservation is pointless. Most of these paid hunts are regulated by the government, who in turn pays the locals to help maintain the habitat, and hire rangers to combat poaching. And the animals that can be hunted, are ones who can no longer breed, or are killing of other members of the species.
I keep wondering what those rich people have achieved that makes nothing else matter anymore, to the point where they are driven to go all the way to Africa and shoot a wild animal just for the lolz.
Agree. Lets stop this hunting farms and let África's economy finally lost its last profitable activity. Fuck África! Yaaaaas
oh ricky... funny how even the most sceptic people sound like buffoons as soon as they let their emotions talk.
Those on the pic are very much alive and not shot!
But we like going pewpew on the big cats!!!
My drunk ass thought he's dissing the photographer...
