It was assumed that blacks were the exterminators of cc-wildlife.Latter,traveling people from Europe arrived in the early eighteenth century for huinting for thousands of years,for great quantity of valuable commodities such as ivory and skins. This caused the number of game to dramatically decrease due to hunting and trading of animal skins and horns. It is also apparent that white hunters and sportsmen killed more game than the blacks did.

The first law for animal protection, was to control traveling  hunters, in 1846. It stated that only game for own consumption could be hunted and foreigners were prohibited from hunting.other lawes came on which will forever remind us of that which we are so dangerously close to loosing.
