    Just received an email offering an immediate PAC lion hunt. If you are mobile and can be in Swakopmund, Namibia in 5 days or less, this may be of interest.

    The situation:
    There was a pride of 6 lions living near a village called Puros in the Kunene region in northwestern Namibia. The people there are the Himba Hereros. The lion pride consisted of 2 adult females with 3 subadult cubs. Two of the cubs are males. There was on big male that comes and goes. The pride lived along the Hoasureb river. They ate nearly all of the game in the marshes then started on the locals cattle. The locals were advised to remove the cattle, which they did. The lions then have eaten more than 50 donkeys which are the primary means for transport. The female lions were under extreme stress as they did all of the catching and the males grabbed all of the food. The females were darted and moved to another area. They big male stayed for a while but left only yesterday away from the young males. The young males are now terrifying to locals as they have no fear of humans.

    This is to take out one subadult male. (possibly both) The fee is $12,000 U.S.D. It is inclusive of permit fees, conservation fees, daily rate, accomodations, meals, drinks, and the lion fee.

    Hunt starts from Swakopmund and ends there. Tommy Hall is the PH and this is within his conservancy concession. He advise that this will be a relatively easy hunt. If there are no hunter/takers, he will be required to take the lion/lions himself to protect the locals.

    If interested, please contact me and I will put you in direct contact with Tommy Hall.

    Everyone,
    Thanks for looking. Tommy Hall is leaving for Puros in less than a day. The situation may be rectified. If not, hopefully MET will will allow more action.

    I would love to go on this hunt, but there is just no way, at this time. This sounds like an amazing story.

    Good luck on the hunt!

    Thanks,
    Tommy Hall left for Puros earlier today. Looks like he must kill the lion himself as no last minute takers. I asked why both young males were no to be taken out, and why the big male is off limits at this time.

    Apparently, the bureaucrats in the Ministry of Environment and Tourism believe that taking only one young male will scare the other sibling and the big male away. Plus the big male has "good genes". During the day, the lions have been hanging out but 300 meters from the childrens school. They become active at night and have again been hitting the cattle which were moved away from the village. I'm betting that this situation will escalate to some tragedy. It's like the bears in our parks that are accustomed to "easy lunch" and wait for the tourist to show up each day so they can raid the garbage and campsites. If you wish, please send me a private message or email me directly and I can place you on the alert list.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Geoff
