I agree with everything you said. Except for the comment its not the size of the operation but the concept. In Africa its a management tool. It helps protect the animals from going onto neighboring farms and helps keep pouchers out. Some of these lands are 100's of thousand of acres. In South Africa some of these ranches reach millions of acres. I have hunted in Texas on a 250,000 high fenced ranch for white tail deer. These animals are all wild animals and have plenty of land to hide and forage. How about natural areas surounded on fours sides by urbanization,subdivisions,interstates and roads. Are these not barriers limiting wildlife movements. I submit to you that some open natural areas can be limited or be more limiting of animal movement than some high fenced ranches. Like I previously said, I support everything you said and canned hunts are shameful. However, large ranches with high fences can be ethically done. The size of the parcel is the difference and are those animals truely wild.
