Signed where possible and sent an email to that hunting site.

Dear Francois and Johan Dorfling


Having been directed to your site I felt I had to write to ask how you can use the words ‘ethical’ and ‘hunting’ in the same sentence. I will never convince those of you who derive pleasure from killing animals that it is something to be ashamed of. So I will keep this just a brief condemnation of your activities.


Yours Sincerely

This was the absurd reply I got to my email!!!!!!! I won't grace it with an answer!!

Please buy my company from me, and in doing so you can save all the animals' lives.......


Question:   How much money & time & effort do you put into conservation yourself?


I have devoted all mine over the past 20 years.....


So please, I beg you, we hunt & kill at least 1000 animals annually.....why don’t you buy my company and save all of them!!!!


Otherwise please do more research on the matter to understand that human breeding and city development has destroyed some very important links in the food chain ie taking out predators……so now humans have to control numbers of wild animals more than ever

Education minister Fauzia Khan poses with dead wild animals in South Africa

By Vijay Singh
TNN | Dec 15, 2012, 04.06 PM IST

MUMBAI: The Maharashtra
minister of state for education, Fauzia
Khan, is in a tight spot as her private holiday trip photos to South Africa
earlier this year have now been circulated in India.

The education minister is seen holding a hunting rifle and posing with
dead wild animals like
zebras, bucks, buffalos and others during a jungle safari. Citizens and
animal lovers in Mumbai have reacted sharply to these holiday snaps and
demanded the resignation of Fauzia Khan.

However, when TOI spoke to Khan in Nagpur today, she explained: "I had gone
for a very private holiday trip to South Africa with my family this summer.
In that country, the culling of certain wild animals is allowed by their
forest department, depending on the carrying capacity of the jungle. So, I
have only posed for a few photos with the culled wild animals. We did not
break any law."

When asked why she was smiling while posing with the just killed wild
animals, especially since in India it is considered cruel and illegal to
kill wild animals, Khan stated: "I was on a private holiday trip, so there
is nothing wrong in smiling. Also, I personally did not cull or hunt down
the animals in South Africa; it was done by a professional person who was
present there."

Khan added that just as goats and chickens are legally culled in India for
its meat, it is legal to cull certain wild animals in South Africa.

When told about the strong citizens' reactions her African safarai snaps
have received here, she commented: "It was wrong to put these very private
holiday pictures of mine on any website. And again, I did not break any
law. When you go as a tourist to, say, Kashmir or Rajasthan, you do pose
for pictures in their traditional costumes. That is why that gun is also
seen in the pictures."

Meanwhile, the famous writer, poet and animal rights activist of People For
Animals (PFA), Pritish Nandy, reacted by saying: "It is not a question of
legality, but morality. There is no justification whatsoever for a state
minister to pose with a gun in front of freshly killed wild animals. This
is shameful, she must step down as the minister of state for education."

Mumbai based RTI activist of the NGO 'Athak Seva Sangh', Anil Galgali,
commented: "Fauzia Khan must resign today itself, otherwise the Maharashtra
chief minister must sack her. From those photos, you can clearly make out
that our education minister is very comfortable and smiling. What kind of
example will she set for the young students who look up to our state and
national leaders?"
