South Africa has always led the Continent of Africa in its conservation stance of preservation. Their government so harshly criticized by some shows its true dedication to the Country and its wild animals! I applaud another noble effort of the government. I wish trophy hunting was also made illegal but wishing doesn't make it happen only determined and unrelenting efforts can curtail such inhumane activities!
