A letter in today's Metro from a Zimbabwean who has worked in Hwange National Park where Cecil lived, says "I understand the benefits hunting brings to the country. The Department of National Parks allocates licences, which are auctioned to hunting companies. The money paid by hunters means many people are employed in areas where there would otherwise be no employment. Believe me, no-one in Britain really understands poverty until they have been to these places. As with all systems, there are those who break the rules and poach animals. I don't understand why people like to hunt but I don't think it should be banned. Most hunters in Africa love and understand the wildlife and will ensure that the animals are hunted ethically."
