In the light of the fact that cheetah populations have fallen so low in Africa it's simply unconscionable that cheetah hunting is still continuing.

Despite the enormous political power of the Dallas Safari Club and Safari Club International the United States as well as many European 

countries no longer allows the import of cheetah trophies. So why do Canada, Spain and France? These are countries which if there was 

any logic simply wouldn't permit it. It's particularly abhorrent that female cheetah kills are licensed. I'll write more later on the subject.
