Victory for Kratos!

kratos rhinoThis is Kratos. Gorgeous, feisty, healthy-the perfect genes for breeding. But the conservancy he resides in deemed him aggressive, a troublemaker. Their solution-sell him in a trophy hunt.

The problem is that the conservancy can only legally hunt impalas and warthog. This violation has been the subject of a heated, urgent court battle this week, as the hunt was scheduled for the end of the week.

Fortunately justice and common sense prevailed, and he has been spared.

“…At the end of the day, none of this should have been necessary. Nature Conservation should not have granted a permit; a hunter shouldn’t have wanted to pay R1.2m to have one photo taken of him standing next to a slaughtered rhino. However, there are people out there who operate to a different agenda to normal, decent human beings and fortunately this time we have managed to foil them from achieving their objectives. Although we have won this battle, this is not an end to it and I will continue to fight against the needless slaughter of our wildlife.”  —Tim Fenner, the owner of Kichaka Luxury Lodge, who launched the urgent interdict. 

Thank you to OSCAP for keeping us up to date on the proceedings!

    So glad for this beautiful sentient creature, and thank goodness for sane compassionate people who fight for the voiceless. May there numbers grow until this madness, cruelty and decimation is outlawed forever.
