Zimbabwe Lifts Ban On Hunting Lions, Leopards And Elephants

posted on August 11, 2015

Following a ban that lasted less than two weeks, the Zimbabwe Ministry of Environment has lifted a temporary suspension on lion, leopard and elephant hunting.

According to a news release sent to Safari Club International by the Zimbabwe Professional Hunters & Guides Association, the goal of the suspension—to gain clarity and understand the position of stakeholders following the possibly illegal killing of a collared lion—has been met.

The news release included a few new conditions to be met at this time: Some additional regulations and paperwork have been introduced to reinforce accountability of operators to the National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority; lion, leopard and elephant hunts will be compulsorily attended by a member of the Authority at the expense of the landowner; no further hunting of collared iconic animals will be allowed; and individuals involved in illegal hunting activities will be banned from hunting in Zimbabwe for life.
