Deny any applications! Leave the rhinos alone!! They must not be killed! Do not believe those rediculous, unscientific claims!

Hajra Younus

They have a right to die naturally they should not be killed its barbaric and painful death for animal

If he shoots the bull legally in Namibia, he should be able to take it where he wants.

Unless they are severely injured or very ill and not going to survive yes, but not because they are old.

So, the Namibian government was going to kill this rhino regardless of whether anyone buys the permit. That’s a fact. Good conservation practices require that this bull be killed. As a way to increase desperately-needed funding for wildlife conservation in Namibia, they reach a deal to auction a tag, which SHOULD have brought nearly $750,000 — all of which would have gone to protect rhinos. Instead, airheads who can’t understand that economics is the driving force in conservation protest, make death threats on the members of Dallas Safari Club, and result in most bidders pulling out.

What the anti-hunting extremists did was rob the Namibian government of vital funds needed for conservation. Hunters pay more than three million dollars per day in *self-imposed* taxes which go to habitat restoration, wildlife conservation, etc. If you can put aside, for just a minute, the idea that your view is somehow superior, and look at what is good for the population (not the individual animal), you may see that it is money that saves… Read more »

I hear what you’re saying and to put my comment in perspective, my family hunts, and I know about what permits and fees, etc., do for wildlife. Again, it’s an emotional issue for some people and we have that right too. It just doesn’t feel right to a lot of people… p.s. my bff is the secretary for the head of Fish and Game here in CA so I know about all that too…
