Botswana Regrettably Lifts Its 5-Year Moratorium On Elephant Hunting.
This is a crying shame BUT was to be expected.
Landlocked and very sparsely populated Botswana is NOT poor by African standards. It makes good money from mining and tourism and has a growing economy. But, elephant hunting is LUCRATIVE money and will, ironically, boost tourism — i.e., and influx of RICH hunters with money to throw around.
Shame. A crying shame.
