    They are just after the money & will do nothing to help the situation. The animals will be exploited & live out miserable lives especially after living in the wild then being confined. Pretty sure they aren't going to make sure these animals get the best of care or are in the hands of repsonsible people who will look after them. It's just all about greed as it always is. This is not protecting wildlife at all. What a farce. They should be ashamed to think that people are that stupid to believe that story.

    They will be auctioned off to game farms that allow trophy hunting. If Namibia really wanted to save their wildlife, drill boreholes. Currently the are clubbing seals to death which have nothing to do with the drought. The permit issued for the trophy hunt on Voortrekker, a large desert bull elephant was disgraceful. I think the auction has more to do with greed. Namibia has faced many droughts and the animals have all survived. The animals should be free to migrate to the Kgalagadi .
