Big Cats Spared by Zambia as It Allows Trophy Hunting Resumption

Zambia, the southern African nation with nearly a third of its land reserved for wildlife, has lifted a ban on hunting for species other than wild cats.

“The suspension of safari hunting is hereby lifted,” Tourism and Arts Minister Jean Kapata said in comments broadcast on Lusaka-based Radio Phoenix. “The suspension of cat hunting shall still remain in force until a survey to ascertain their numbers” is complete.
