The scimitar horned oryx . . . the addax . . . the dama gazelle three elegant desert antelope that you'd hope to see on a journey through Africa, except that their numbers are dwindling there. Which is why Lara Logan went to Texas yes, Texas. There, on large grassland ranches, some exotic species that are endangered in the wild have been brought back in large numbers. But there's a catch: a percentage of the herd is hunted every year by hunters who pay big money for a big catch. The ranchers say this limited "culling" gives them the money they need to care for the animals and conserve the species.

The Audad and the Blackbuck were pretty much gone from the areas they used to inhabit. Because of them being raised in areas like Texas they not only protect the species, but Audad have been taken from those ranches to Africa and returned to the wild and Blackbuck have been returned to India. Win-win situation.

You want to save something? Make it valuable and put a price tag on it.

You think the petafags would do that?
