"Good for conservation efforts"? Bullshit.
I realize this isn't great debates but do you have a cite for your statement that the population of an endangered species doesn't need to be culled? I agree that it seems counter intuitive, but I'm not an expert on wildlife management of any kind let alone when it comes to rhinos. And, yes, trophy hunting is good for conservation efforts. I'm pretty sure this isn't what motivated the dude to hunt but so what?
I can be found in history's unmarked grave of discarded ideologies.
