Disciplinary Action Taken Against Outfitter Conducting Leopard Hunt with Hounds On September 11, 2009 a South African citizen, farmer, PH, outfitter and hound master conducted a leopard hunt with hounds in the Khomashochland, Namibia with a Canadian client. Said South African is not a registered professional hunter in Namibia, and does not have a valid work permit for Namibia. The Canadian hunter booked his hunt through a foreign based booking agent directly with the SA hunting outfit that belongs to the SA hound master. He allegedly has an business agreement (partnership) with an Namibian outfitter. The trophy was taken on land for which the hunting Licence was not issued, this is not permitted . The Namibian PH (no NAPHA member) was not present when the Leopard was shot. All three individuals involved, the Canadian hunter, the Namibian PH and the SA dog handler unconditionally admitted that they hunted illegally. Formal charges have been laid by the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism against the Namibian outfitter, the Namibian PH as well as the South African dog handler. The MET confiscated the skin as it originated from an illegal hunt. A disciplinary action has been launched against the owner of the outfitting company, who is a NAPHA member.
