Cheetah Hunting Permit Issuance Halted In Namibia
Cheetah Hunting Permit Issuance Halted In Namibia For The Remainder Of 2009
This may not be of as much interest to Americans as Cheetah trophies cannot be imported back into the United States, however this may affect many hunters from other countries that do allow Cheetah trophies to be imported under CITES.
Without previous notice, the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) has stopped issuing Cheetah hunting permits for the rest of the 2009 hunting season in Namibia.
Attached is the actual letter that was sent on April 23, 2009 to Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) effective April 24, 2009.
