I was watching TV last night on Anthony Beaudine I think his name is. He did a story on well healed Americans hunting Africa.
Absolutely brilliant. He had the opportunity to take a warthog with a crossbow but just couldn't do it. The PH/conservationist told him some can and some can't kill an animal. Those that can't don't mid eating what is hunted tho.. The PH also trapped wild game, usually bucks or the male of the species to introduce new breeding stock into his herds. Anthony could understand breeding animals just so they can be hunted.
By the end of the show and after much explaining to him he finally got the idea behind it.
THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP THESES ANIMALS ALIVE IS TO KILL THEM.
He finally understood that to preserve these animals they have to be of value. If they aren't they are no use and people eill end up destroying the bush so they can run an uneconomical species like cattle. This would destroy the natural environment and these game animals would be extinct in a couple of generations as they would have no natural environment.
He finally go the idea that the only way we can save these animals is by killing them and agreeded with the philosophy.
Unfortunately I didn't get to see the whole show but when it comes on again I will definitely watch it all.
It would be great to show it to all ANTI hunters so they might get the picture of what we do as Nd why we do it.
