Uganda decides against game hunting.

Uganda has yielded to pressure and decided not to permit sports hunting in the country in the immediate future. The decision is the result of considerable controversy over the fact that game numbers in the country had not been verified and also in response to suggestions made by Ugandan hunting promoters that the endangered Sitatunga gazelle would be ‘available' as a trophy - despite the fact that it is CITES protected. The Ugandan Wildlife Authority has now agreed to carry out a game survey while expressing doubts over the sustainability of hunting in view of Uganda's reducing game numbers.
