South Africa is the world’s top "canned" lion hunting destination, the rhino hunting permit system has been repeatedly abused in recent years to launder horn into the illegal medicine market in the East and some hunters are shooting animals which live in the Kruger National Park and cross unfenced boundaries into private and provincial nature reserves.
There is a need for Legislative Reform, due to problems with the existing Animals Protection Act (APA) and the Performing Animals Protection Act (PAPA), in relation to interpretation, application, administration, Locus Standi, enforcement and inadequate investigation & trained personnel.
South Africa is currently entrusted with over 90% of the world’s population of white rhinoceroses, but at the same time it has become abundantly clear that not only are rhinoceroses in South Africa facing one of their worst threats ever as a species, but they are literally under siege.
Elephants in South Africa have had a raw deal for hundreds of years and we should not perpetuate this simply because we have the power to do so. “Might” is not “right”; it is not an ethic or code of civilization, it is rather a utilitarian real politik that rules according to power rather than rational ethics.
