    how much the community has so far received from the price of the kills. Is there any community befitting from trophy hunting in Toshi area. A detailed probe is needed on it.

  2. Saif says

    I believe trophy hunting is permissible by law and to add to your info, they pay huge amount of licence fee I.e. thousands of dollars; part of which goes to the local community to protect the rest in the conservancy. This is one sustainable approach. Why don’t the locals stop illegal hunting instead?

    1. Shahabuddin says

      It may be legal and it may be bringing money, but it certainly is disgusting to see poor animals/birds being killed for pleasure. In primitive times it was a need for survival. Now it is unnecessary and pure sadism. It shows the sick mind inside the killer of harmless birds/animals who ask for nothing from life except the chance to live on their own. Chitralis as a lot are big culprits in this respect.

  3. Shahabuddin says

    The idiot should seek thrills elsewhere in a world full of opportunities instead of cruelly killing an innocent animal for his pleasure.
