More Media Warming To Hunting

posted on August 13, 2015

As we mentioned last week, after the possibly illegal killing of a collared lion in Zimbabwe, some news outlets are beginning to print the truth about hunting. Now even The New York Times has weighed in on the scientific side of a story that has so far relied way more on emotion.

“Despite the intensifying calls to ban or restrict trophy hunting in Africa, most conservation groups, wildlife management experts and African governments support the practice as a way to maintain wildlife,” Norimitsu Onishi wrote in the Times article.

The story also quotes Rosie Cooney, a zoologist who is the chairwoman of the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Sustainable Use and Livelihoods Specialist Group, saying: “There’s only two places on the earth where wildlife at a large scale has actually increased in the 20th century, and those are North America and southern Africa. Both of those models of conservation were built around hunting.”
