Anywhere close to a huntable number yet?
There are plenty of them. The real question is why can't you import them into the USA?
Namibia has CITES quota on Cheetah.
Not in the USFWS's mind though.
Lucky us, we can import them.
They are a celebrity animal and census counts and/or CITES agreements are irrelevant. Those of us who spend any time in Namibia soon discovered that they are treated there about like coyotes in the States.
I was just really curious as to why I have never seen them offered. Thinking they would make a really near mount. After posting, and reading the comments this far, did a quick internet search and didn't really find that many hunts (compared to other African species). Even if they aren't legal to import to the US, are there many hunted from folks in other countries? Again, I would have thought that there would be more hunting offers out there.
I think a fair number get hunted by the European folks.
