As of today, the US Government has stopped allowing hunting of the dama gazelle & two other exotic African antelopes & has given them full protection under the federal Endangered Species Act. Texas ranchers have been raising the antelopes for hunting - now, they can’t afford to keep the herds, can’t legally kill them and they cannot release them. The ranchers can apply for federal permits to continue the hunts, but most won’t because they say it is government intrusion. The animal activists are happy.

If I were a Texas gazelle rancher, I would load my herd into my stock trailer, drive them up to Washington, D.C. and open my trailer door on K Street.
