Another American citizen hunts markhor in Gilgit after paying US$ 110,000
GILGIT – Another American citizen has hunted the highest-priced markhor in Sassi village of Gilgit on Monday.

The US hunter, Bryan Kinsel Harlan, had paid a record 110,000 US dollars (the highest permit fee ever offered in the country) as permit fee for hunting Pakistan's national animal in Gilgit-Baltistan.

According to the Gilgit-Baltistan wildlife department, the US citizen successfully hunted a flared-horned markhor from Sassi-Harmosh community conservation area during the 2018-19 hunting season.

The foreign hunter managed to hunt a 41-inch markhor trophy, which is considered a good-sized trophy.

On Jan 16, another American, John Amistoso, had hunted the Astore Markhor in the community-controlled Bunji area of Gilgit, paying the 100,000 US dollars permit fee.

So far, the national and foreign hunters have hunted 50 rare wildlife species in the Gilgit Baltistan region under trophy hunting season 2018-19.

Up to 80 per cent of the money generated from issuing markhor hunting permits is shared with the local community, which works to prevent illegal hunting of the animal.

The Gilgit-Baltistan Wildlife Department in Oct 2018 auctioned hunting permits for 18 rare species under the trophy hunting programme 2018 and 2019. The licences for trophy hunting included four Astore markhor, 14 blue sheep and 95 ibex.
