Apart from supplying to the professional hunting markets, Castle de Wildt maintains a very responsible in house culling program which includes the culling of too many animals, excess split gene animals, and animals that cannot be reintroduced to the breeding program. These animals are culled and the meat processed for private use or donated to the local community for feeding programs at old age homes, children’s homes, churches and schools.
Hunting and humans are closely related. Humans have been hunting since the beginning of man, when it was the only food source available. As time has passed, humans have progressed, and figured out many other sources of food, for example farming. Over hunting has resulted in the the killing of wildlife which may be important to humans. This affects humans in that if the animal species becomes endangered, it will throw off natural predation and it will be more expensive to buy the meat or fur of that animal. The endangerment of species can cause many different things to humans. For example, if one animal is endangered, its predator will also become endangered. Ultimately it will affect humans with food and resources.
Hunting is very beneficial to many countries around the world, and ultimately benefits humans. Hunting contributes large amounts of money to the country’s economy. It creates many jobs, where people can make a living for themselves and also it increases world trades. With a strong economy a country can prosper and many benefits can be derived from selling the meat of the animal that has been hunted, selling the fur, or other exterior parts of the animal, and lastly the money hunters spend on the hunting license and equipment itself.
