This teaser video introduces Map Ives, Botswana’s head of rhino conservation. Mr. Ives reveals that he gave up hunting in 1983 after noticing disappearing wildlife. CNN’s Bill Weir finishes the thought: “But since his country banned hunting here the animals have relaxed and multiplied.” Yes, well, back in March 2014, survivalinternational.com reported that “Botswana’s President Khama has banned all hunting nationwide, even for Bushmen who hunt to feed their families – but an exception is being made . . .
“…for trophy hunters paying up to $8,000 to hunt giraffes and zebras. Wealthy tourists are being invited to travel to Botswana to hunt big game on private ranches that have been exempted from the ban. But Bushmen from Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve, who have hunted with spears, bows and arrows for millennia, are being arrested, beaten and jailed for subsistence hunting.” A fact that CNN’s anti-hunting propaganda fails to mention.
