Botswana starts selling elephant-hunting licenses for the first time in five years

By

In May 2019, Botswana ended the ban on elephant hunting that had been in effect in the country for five years. Now, nine months later, Botswana has sold its first round of elephant-hunting licenses since the ban was lifted.

As reported by Reuters, on Friday, Feb. 7, Botswana auctioned off six hunting packages, meaning a total of 60 wild elephants will be killed.
