Hunting brings money to Zim

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) - Foreign big game hunters bid $1.5 million US to shoot leopards, lions, elephants and buffaloes in Zimbabwe this year, the state media reported Sunday.

In an annual state auction for hunting trophy "bags" on Friday, 64 local agents and foreign hunters, including bidders from Austria, Germany, Russia, Spain and the United States, paid a fixed fee of $40 US for a license to kill a lion, the state Sunday Mail newspaper reported.
