Reportedly in Kazakhstan, a hunter shot a wolf and as the wolf was dying in pain, the hunter pulled him with his ears to capture his victorious kill. And as if that was not enough, the hunter is seen grinning while the wolf howls for mercy. This is a very insensitive news and has led its readers grief stricken.

This is the shocking moment where we see that the hunter pulls the ears of the already dying wolf and forces it to pose for a picture. The hunter himself is seen grinning for the picture as if taking pleasure in doing so.
A recent footage which has been traced to eastern Kazakhstan reveals how the wolf is first shot in his hind legs and then how the hunter mercilessly pulls him by his ears causing the wolf howling in agony, just to take a picture of his heinous crime. You can also very well spot the stains of blood near the fur of the wolf's hind legs which prove that he was shot first.
In spite of all the pain and agony, the wolf still tries to get away and fights back, as you can see from the image above on how the wolf tries to bite the hunter in order to save himself. The wolf is writhing to get loose from the firm grip of the hunter, but is unable to do so.
The hunter ultimately overpowers the fight and the wolf is forced down to the ground and strangles it before leaving him to die.
The wolf finally stopped breathing and his pain is put to end. The hunter is seen dressed in the traditional Kazakh hunting clothes as he smiles at the corps of the wild wolf he just brutally killed.
What we know about the hunter is that his name is Erzhan Aga and is popular as a specialist who tracks down and kills wolfs and has a license from the local authorities to do so. The amount of money generated to slay wolfs every year is £27 bounty. The estimated population of the wild wolfs is just around 30,000 and still the hunters easily get away with the licenses to kill them. This is a very sad situation against which major steps need to be taken.
