Hi Karl,in view of it being a possibilty of hunting leopard this season in Namibia I would like some clarification regarding situations where leopard are wounded over bait. Is a professional hunter in Namibia permitted to employ trained tracking dogs to locate the wounded leopard so that it can be dispatched?I feel this is an important question for PH's and clients alike not to mention the suffering leopard. I have on many occassions helped out fellow PH's tracking down wounded leopard where a follow up would not even have started let alone be abandoned.In these cases the leopard was almost always located by the hounds and dispatched by a member of the follow up party.Allowing the use of trained dogs for this purpose eliminates a lot of the danger of the leopard taking someone by supprise.The suffering of the leopard is not drawn out unduly.The clients trophy is recovered for him and the general public is not exposed to bumping into a nasty supprise. Looking forward to your reply. Regards, Roy Sparks.
