Leopards - Kill of a Lifetime (Zimbabwe)

Leopards - Kill of a Lifetime (Zimbabwe)

"Recommended. An important program that reveals how the killing of leopards is taking place despite their being an endangered species." -NAMTC & NMM Review
This documentary exposes the latest and most controversial hunting fad sweeping through South Africa and Zimbabwe, the killing of leopards. Safari operators offer overseas hunters the chance to hunt leopards with highly trained and specially bred packs of hounds. Shown are American hunters who shoot exhausted leopards cornered by hunting hounds. The hunters call it the "thrill of a lifetime," and justify the safaris saying they bring in much-needed foreign currency to Zimbabwe's crippled tourist economy. Where money "talks," the concerns of conservationists become more and more marginalized. Produced by ABC Australia. 08/11DE JSCA 30 min.
