Hunter Poses Next To Corpse Of Rare Screw-Horn Goat He Paid £85,000 To Kill
Despite all efforts to stop trophy hunting around the world, it seems to continue.
People fly from across the globe, pay a hell of a lot of money and then proudly pose for a picture with their dying or dead animal.
Like this guy:
Here is a bloke who forked out a whopping £85,000 to kill a rare Himalayan screw-horn goat. Not only that, but he paid the money to the Pakistani government to get authorisation for the hunt.
Bryan Harlan is the man who paid for the hunt and told Dallas News: "It is an honor and privilege to be back in Pakistan.
"This is the third time I am in Pakistan. I have hunted almost all animals here.
"I saved the markhors for the last."
The Astore Markhor used to be listed as endangered but was downgraded to near-threatened, which still doesn't mean it's out of the woods in terms of conservation.
Strangely, despite hunting these animals being illegal in Pakistan, the government will still okay an expedition as long as they get paid for it.

According to Dallas News, 80 percent of the money goes to local communities, which is nice, but doesn't really excuse the killing of a defenceless animal for no other reason than sport.
There are plenty of hunting stories that can get you mad, like this one for example.
A man was convicted of killing hundreds of deer in America and, in addition to getting jail time, the judge ordered him to watch the Disney film Bambi.
It's hoped that by watching the 1942 animation once a month the poacher will see the error of his ways.
According to official court records, dated December 6, Berry 'is to view the Walt Disney movie Bambi, with the first viewing being on or before December 23, 2018, and at least one such viewing each month thereafter, during defendant's incarceration in the Lawrence County Jail'.
While Bambi is a fun movie, it might not be that enjoyable for deer murderers.
Local media outlet, Springfield News-Leader, reported that after killing the poor animals he would chop their head off before leaving their bloody corpse to rot.
Berry, along with three family members, was busted by police following a multi-year poaching investigation, which saw the gang target young bucks.
It's understood to be one of the largest such cases ever investigated by the state of Missouri.
