South Africa’s trophy hunt industry linked to rhino horn trafficking … AGAIN

South Africa’s trophy hunt industry linked to rhino horn trafficking … AGAIN | Trophy Hunting | Scoop.it

The July 2013 seizure of 24 rhino horns and arrest of 16 suspects in the Czech Republic points yet again to South Africa’s failure to properly monitor its own trophy hunt industry.

 

The “hunters” were said to have been hired by an “international criminal gang” to legally kill rhinos in South Africa. This is in order to use the CITES permit loophole which allows for the import of “legally” sourced rhino horns into the Czech Republic. Customs officials at Prague’s Václav Havel International Airport became suspicious and contacted the police, according to Radio Prague. Although no names were released due to the ongoing investigation, among those arrested were Czech as well as foreign nationals. The operation was conducted in conjunction with INTERPOL.

 

South Africa’s trophy hunt industry has been at the center of rhino horn trafficking for quite some time. The first Vietnamese “pseudo-hunt” apparently took place in 2003, and in November 2009, the wildlife trade monitoring network TRAFFIC warned in its report ahead of CITES CoP15 that these bogus hunts had already been taking place on “the same game ranches repeatedly”. Meanwhile, several professional hunters were arrested more than once between 2006 and 2010 for rhino crimes.....

Trophy hunting is outmoded

Re "Museum project's stuffed animals draw ire" (Our Region, July 12): The audacity of Paul and Renee Snider to justify in any regard the killing of exotic animals and stuffing them for the public's "education" is beyond appalling.

 

That idea comes from a past world when trophy hunting was glorified. What those carcasses actually represent is people bereft of knowledge about not only endangered species, but also caring about the right of these beautiful animals to remain living and reproducing in their natural habitats,

undisturbed by high-powered rifles turning them into dust-covered statues.

 

What a wonderful example for children. How would parents explain those displays, that these are the animals they killed? Shame on them. It's actually shocking in this day and age.

Trophy hunting - Wikipedia

Trophy hunting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Trophy hunting has firm supporters and opponents. Public debate about trophy hunting often centres on the question of the morality of sport hunting and the question of the extent to which the money paid by trophy hunters benefits the population of game animals and the local economy.

We Have to Stop the ‘Canned Hunting’ of African Wildlife

The author of ‘Soul of a Lion’ tells of her rescue work with animals in Africa and the latest fad that’s destroying them....

 

I could hear her coming before I saw her, the deep, resonating purr in rhythm with her breathing. Then the bright amber eyes appeared, followed closely by the outline of her narrow shoulders and slender body gliding through the African night. It was Pride, a cheetah, come to check out who was sleeping in her enclosure.

 

I lay quietly in my sleeping bag and waited for her to approach me. Once she caught my scent and...

Why I am so sick of hunting industry propaganda

See: a little propaganda piece by Safari Club International: http://dailycaller.com/2011/03/04/why-being-hunted-is-good-for-africas-lions/#ixzz2XtDWNyoh

 

Let’s analyse some of the points made, shown in parentheses below:

 

(Animal rights orgs use emotional messaging that has nothing to do with the science of wildlife conservation.)


Does this mean that advocating protection for wildlife is emotional and unscientific, whereas killing wild animals for fun is scientific? Surely not.
Next they’ll tell us that the only way to preserve whales is to hunt them in the Antarctic.

 

(Hunters and hunting actually benefit lions).


Rebuttal: No, actually it was the irresponsible over-hunting by trophy hunters that wiped out wild lion prides and forced the industry to turn to lion farming and canned hunting in order to generate a constant supply of living targets for the trophy hunters....
