It is totally up to the PH, he is in charge of the safari and is responsible for the actions of anyone in his party. Any follow ups/ reports and paperwork shall be his sole responsibility.
Here is a thought.
Send a letter to the Outfitter, ZPHGA , SOAZ and Zim Parks. Enclose photos of the leopard along with details of what happened. Tell them they have three months to get your leopard to you or to get your money back. If they don't you will forward your letters, photos etc. to Johnny Rodrigues.
Ask the outfitter how Theo Bronkhorst's hunting business is doing these days.
Ask ZPHGA and SOAZ to put pressure on the outfitter. They have a vested intererest in making this right for you. Especially if this outfitter is a member. If the outfitter is a member, he shouldn't be. Hopefully the organizations will kick him out.
Ask Zim Parks how much their forex is down this year after the pathetic way they handled the Cecil debacle. Ask them how long it has been since their park rangers have been paid! Ask them to ask the outfitter where your leopard is! Ask if they are ready to deal with Cecilia the leopard.
This may seem drastic but it is sickening the way some outfitters screw their clients. The outfitter should be called out for his actions so this doesn't happen to someone else.
I don't see any evidence that the PH did anything wrong. In fact, he probably was working behind the scenes to prevent worse repercussions for the client from the list above. I find the conclusion or even the hint that the PH screwed the client to be without evidence.
As a hunter, the onus is always onus to determine sex, shootability etc... we cannot blame the PH in my mind. When I pull the trigger, I MUST be sure of my shot, the safe area behind the shot and what I am shooting at... I cannot shoot a Gemsbok and then claim I thought it was a kudu, for example!!
The PH was in charge of the hunt, if his client shot a female leopard then how is he or she not wrong. I fail to see the logic. The money is another issue entirely. But a lot of mistakes were done on this hunt.
