    Hunting them is considered good sport since these birds have great stamina and unlike Siberian cranes, they don't follow same path every year.

    Anyway, Since Pak Gov had issued permit, Saudi's have no responsibility, either moral or legal for this massacre.

    Many Arabs believe that its meat is an aphrodisiac. (Same reason why many Chinese people pay for tiger testicles and rhino soup.)

    Many hunters are nuts, I know some who hunts tens of birds in one trip, its a sick addiction.

    Just get rid of these medieval royals, I think you're probably more cultured and smart then some 50 of them, such people are just wasting the potential.

    First time I hear this. But then again I am no expert when it comes to hunting. Been on plenty of hunting trips back home though. But we hunted bigger animals than birds. Nothing wrong with legal hunting that is done during the hunting season. Illegal poaching is a crime though.

    There are plenty of highly educated and cultivated members of House of Saud. Many more than the opposite. This man that did this is himself highly educated.
    Besides we have high regard for our rulers and I would not change them with any regional rulers.

    Hunters are good people overall. A few bad apples exist everywhere.

    Some might be intelligent, some not, you can't control who gets the chair thats the point, no place is flawless but I can't think of myself accepting the fact of leaving the future of country to a family that somehow got the power at some point of history.

    On these lines, you endorse with Whale hunters of japan and Iceland just by terming them as bad apples??
    Then what would be left over in the world WRT endangered specie?

    Fir Insaniyat aur Islamiyat kahan miya?

    I could only wonder what would have happened if such a thing ever happened in India!!BTW a question to my Pakistani brothers- I know most of u are as disgusted as I am at this report and wildlife assets belong to the Global community and not not to any individual or nation state.But what is all this romance with these Saud's all about?It's a well known fact that these Arabs after managing to accumulate obscene amounts of wealth owing to their newly found oil resources looks down upon Pakistanis and take them for granted (No offense pls) despite all friendly gestures from Pakistan.And now they are coming into your territory with the knowledge and permission of your establishment and are killing your protected species and everyone is being silent. Pls wake up

    Well your ancestors did not complain when what is now Turkey was ruled by Greeks, Armenians, Arabs, Persians and later different Turkic dynasties and the Ottomans.

    Anyway this prince has nothing to do with the very highest circles of the government.

    What are you talking about? Endorsing what? I am just telling you not to go full retard because of a few bad apples. By far the vast majority of hunters do not behave in this way. All I am trying to get across.

    Not sure where whales, Iceland or Japan came into the picture.
