A hunter named Bryan Kinsel Harlan paid a record of 110,000 to shoot a Markhor in Pakistan and people discuss whether this is good or bad. This is good because hunting the Markhor actually helps the animal not be extinct and Pakistan is getting money for the people that hunt them. The only reason people think its bad is because they don’t know all the affects. We have changed the Markhor from endangered to threatened so more people will try and hunt them as trophys. Both Pakistan and the U.S are trying to help get this animal off the threatened list.
The population of Pakistan is about 197 million. The city where most people live is Karachi. The capital of Pakistan is Islamabad. The population there is a little over 1 million people. Another major city is Lahore, some of the things there are the Lahore Fort and the Badshahi Mosque. The major languages spoke in Pakistan are English, Urdu, Punjabi, Sindhi, Pashto, and Balochi. About 12.4% of Pakistanis live below Pakistan’s definition of poverty. About 6% of Pakistan’s power generation comes from bagasse. The major religion in Pakistan is Islam. In 1971 East Pakistan attempts to secede leading to a civil war, what used to be East Pakistan is now Bangledesh. The current Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, is a former cricket star.
The country I chose is Pakistan. I selected this country because I want to learn more about it. I expect to learn a lot about their culture. Can you hunt there and if so what kind of animals?
