correspondent elise fungo she's joining me from cape town ellis there's a lot of talk about sustainability in the game farming industry in south africa is hunting sustainable yeah that's indeed the big debate is a sustainable and is helping conservation as also the game hunters and the owners of the game farms we're talking about and you know reports that they say they get their hunting companies we're actually making money by that one lion that's being shot so we actually getting more money breeding programs we make sure there's more habitats for for animals to live so we are actually helping that sustainability on the other side is animal rights organizations that researches that are saying look that industry is not very transparent it's not always the case that they take out the old animals for example and it's a commercial business that is that is cruel and yes they do breed animals as well for the hunting so you could say maybe you know that way and numbers are increasing but on the other hand those are not wild animals and called be introduced in the
