U.S. Fish and Wildlife seizure Black-Faced Impala vs Common Impala
I posted about a year ago concerning my hunt and the problems I had with my PH. I finally got all my animals but one. My animals came into the Houston port. U.S. Fish and Wildlife seized my Impala claiming it to be a Black-Faced Impala. My Impala was killed in Kwazulu-Natal province of SA. It looks nothing like a Black Faced Impala. Apparently USF&W seized three Impala out of the same container. All killed by three different hunters in SA. All killed in different areas. I now am required to file a Petition for Remission and may still lose my animal. I never knew what a Black-Faced Impala was until this came about. I have researched and discovered Black-Faced Impala are only found in NW Namibia. Most likely at least 1000 miles from where I hunted. Anyone else have this problem?
