Wildlife Valhalla


Nothing against the Adis, but ALL wild meat is food. I found out theres not a single species they have a taboo against. The mouling national park has few staff who rarely patrol the forests. The one saving grace about the park is that it is inaccessible for a large part of the year, during winter, in the months of Nov-Jan is when Adis from the villages venture into the high altitudes in the park (highest point Mouling peak: 3000 msl) to hunt takin, pheasants and whatever else they can garner.

Well now that I read the entry, the first comment seems out of place.

Anyways, do the Adis hunt only how much they need or do they tend to overkill? Do they have ideas about sustainable hunting that has come down from their forefathers?

well sustainable hunting was in place when bows and arrows and bow traps, etc were in place. With the guns being available now, Kartoos, 0.22, air guns, etc. The whole balance is lost and credit goes to big cities i think!

what do u say...!
