Permit to hunt endangered rhino sells for $350,000 despite protests

General January 12, 2014

(Blank Headline Received)A permit to hunt a black rhino in Namibia sold for $350,000 at an auction in Dallas on Saturday with proceeds going to protect the endangered animals despite protests from animal rights groups that saw the sale as immoral conservation. The Dallas Safari Club had been expecting the permit to bring $250,000 to $1 million at an auction held during its annual convention. "Biologists in Namibia were hopeful that a U.S.-based auction would produce a record amount for rhino conservation, and that's exactly what happened," said club Executive Director Ben Carter. "These bulls no longer contribute to the growth of the population and are in a lot of ways detrimental to the growth of the population because black rhinos are very aggressive and territorial.
