Thanks for asking to be educated. There are 2 major issues going on here.I'm not sure what the sad reality is. The poaching part is sad, for sure but the authorities granting hunting permits may well be based in good science and economy. Around here, poachers kill thousands of Whitetail deer. The government sells licenses to hunters to kill tens of thousands more and though the population is now on the decline many, many more are culled (due to chronic wasting disease). The story sounds dire but it isn't. In the case of whitetails, Alberta has more than enough for a healthy stable population. In the case of Rhino in South Africa, I don't know what the story is and the cue cards of an anti-hunter in a YouTube video hasn't educated me.
I'm sure somebody here will take me to school shortly though.
How on gods green earth did you get that he was blaming AK-47s for firefights and war? What are poached/ hunted enough here in the states? Are you some kind of troll? Go wander in some other forum. We have class here my friend.Now now, don't go blaming AK47's for the firefights and war...they are poached/hunted enough here in the States!
