Hunting in Mongolia

I just can't be indifferent to this: the Mongolian government is allowing the hunting of endangered species. This is something beyond my comprehension.... Even such rare animals as snow leopards can be hunted for "research" purposes

UPDATE: "Mongolian Environment and Tourism Minister L. Gansukh canceled the permission to kill four leopards for scientific purpose this year, after meeting researchers and representatives of non-government organizations to discuss the issue.

The researchers opposed the decision made by the cabinet on March 2. They said genetic research and other modern technologies made it possible to do scientific research without killing the highly endangered species."
