What the law says about hunting cheetahs and leopards is one thing...what really goes on is a whole other matter. Leopards and cheetahs on shoot on sight for the most part.....hardly anyone is going to try and bait and get a CITES permit. Now if you could hunt them with dogs and had a quota...and could ship them to the U.S., then they would have a value associated to them. I have not meet enough landowners that are willing to feed one springbok to leopard....so that tells you were the wildlife management is in Namibia. Landowners will tell you how many game the leopards and cheetahs eat if they aren't shoot on sight....there is no reimbursment...slim chance of getting the animal legally before it moves on to the next ranch or property....SHOOT ON SIGHT...sad indeed.
