Outrage at Baviaans leopard hunt offer

16 January 2013
Shaanaaz de Jager and Prudence Mini

A “SEMI-RETIRED attorney” in Johannesburg has come under fire for advertising leopard hunting with “trained dogs” in the Eastern Cape’s pristine Baviaanskloof.

The advert – placed in a prominent South African hunting magazine – has angered conservationists and animal lovers, who have slammed the activity as “almost certainly unlawful, decidedly barbaric and ecologically ruinous”.

Attorney Neil Gellman, who claims he spent his school holidays in the Baviaanskloof area and shot his first leopard at the age of 15, more than 50 years ago, offers interested parties the opportunity to shoot a leopard for R120000. “No kill, no pay,” the advert reads.

This is surely illegal? Are Leopards not a protected species? I suggest we send him out unarmed and unclotherd and let the leopards hunt him. Disgusting way to make money.
