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.
