So if the animals are all being killed off as you say, why do you suppose that scientists who work for the governments involved are the ones who say that the cull is necessary to prevent destruction of habitat ? Bearing in mind that liberal idiots are the only thing standing between the people managing the herd and their ability to turn culled animals into cash to pay for conservation, rangers to help with poaching, aircraft for spotting, drones etc.
If the culls do not take place the quality of the parks will degrade, animals will starve from over grazing and LESS tourists will visit the parks. Circling the drain, so to speak. So the rangers have to cull the animals and are unable to earn anything from that activity unless they sell the hunt itself. Its not what they would choose to do, but they have to get money from somewhere. Numbers or tourists is more driven by the price of the plane ticket, economy at home and the perception of safety and security, than anything else. There is nowhere else to go to get a similar experience - period. From that point of view, you can see more animals now than at any time since the colonial era. And that you cannot blame on the natives. They never had cattle prior to the arrival of the white man and lived in harmony with nature just like the native people in North America.
The problem is that the natives now want to live like americans. A consumption driven society is clearly not the friend of natural resources. The people on this site are the minority of Americans who are personally involved and care deeply about having wild life in the US. But to do so and participate requires disposable income. That is something that the natives in sub saharan africa do not have much of. They are at a completely different station in life compared to the tourists who are shuttled into and out of their national parks, which are very large areas compared to what one has here in the US.
