Controversial auction of hunting quotas postponed

China’s first-ever auction of hunting quotas has been postponed, said Xinhua News Agency on Friday, citing China's State Forestry Administration (SFA). The auction had been scheduled for Sunday.
SFA spokesman Cao Qingyao said, "The auction will be held in a proper way after soliciting suggestions from the public." He would not give a date. Angry Chinese internet users attacked the auction of quotas, which were to hunt 289 animals of 14 different species, as being a profit-driven scheme.

But the SFA, which acts as China’s wildlife protection agency, said the animals proposed for hunting were not endangered species and restricted hunting would help to protect the animals by increasing transparency and efficiency in the hunting industry.
