Hammerhead, what did the poor tiger run into? A poacher with a chainsaw?

Prashantji, nice pics, and very nice trophy. Are the cheetahs so tame that they pose for pics? Cute!

By the way, how much does it cost to hunt in SA? Can you hire guns also? I was tempted enough to save up some moolah for the same.

And for those who are interested, Indian Museum in Kolkata has a fantastic collection of "heads" in their mammal display. Most people miss it, because it is mounted above the doors, at least 10 feet high. The space from that 10 foot level to the ceiling level (maybe 30 foot ceiling?) is full of magnificent heads, all hunted by some Brit or the other, including some Governor Generals! Sadly (like everything else in this country) many of them are in a sad state of disrepair. The museum's budget being hardly enough to pay salaries and power bills!


Cheers!

Yes. Those are pet Cheetahs owned by the land owner. He had 3 of them and you can see the tail of the second one in the corner if you look carefully.
You can get some really great deals if you go for a culling hunt. You will be surprised Culling huts are quite afordable depending on what you want to cull.
Basically one goes for the overall experience. So if it the first time, don't spend a bomb on it.
I went 7 years ago when a $ was at Rs 39/=.

Those are the body parts of many Tigers being or will be smuggled and surely were poached.

No my point simply is ----- Ignorance, waste, unaccountability, greed, poor sustainable plans and you can keep going on and on.

Has a simple ban on hunting have worked so for or did it ever worked in any country. You can B!TCH on the Goberment as much

you want but any country and all the natural resources belongs to you not goberment, so it's you who are responsible as Pres. Kennedy said!
