DEA Zero Quota for Leopard Hunts 2016

Reports in the press and social media may have already informed you of the zero quota for leopard hunts in 2016. Many anti-hunting groups are hailing this as a “BAN ON LEOPARD HUNTING” being imposed in South Africa. This is not factually correct. 
 
CITES has allocated 150 leopard export permits to South Africa for 2016. But the responsibility for taking up that quota still lies with the country or origin, and in our case The Honourable Minister of Environmental Affairs. One of the standard pre-requisites for allocation of a quota is a continued “Non Detrimental Finding” (NDF) for listed species. This requires a thorough process which determines the “Risk Level” that the particular animal finds itself in based on complex criteria.
 

Hunting’s Contentious Issues

Hunting’s Contentious Issues – Stephen Palos, CHASA Chair.

I may not agree with what you say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it! This declaration, famously credited to the French Revolutionary era writer Voltaire, was the essence of the teachings I received at the hands of one of my finest educators, way back in 1979 in std. 8. It is a statement of liberation. Of the right of man to say (and do) as he pleases. But, like all rights, must surely be practiced in a manner which, in turn, does not infringe on the rights of others.

Driven Hunt

The “Driven Hunt” Debacle - Carte Blanche & National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The South African Hunters Confederation (CHASA) has taken note of the posting by the NSPCA on their social media page as well as the expose relating to an apparent planned “driven” hunt near Alldays in Limpopo Province. We comment as follows:

The method of hunting loosely referred to as “Driven” and which this particular event appears to be based on does indeed occur in a number of biomes and for a number of species both in South Africa and globally. In these circumstances it is certainly a legal, accepted and sustainable hunting method and in certain areas has deep rooted historic and cultural significance.
