On the high plains of the Texas Panhandle, the wind blows continuously. Immensity is a magnifying glass. There, we take ownership of nature and air, everything has a price and African animals are hunted in ranches with high fences.
The exotic game industry generates approximately 1 billion dollars annually in the US. Putting a commercial value on animals is concurrently a blessing and a curse.
