Referred to as the “crazy Russian”, George Ragozin, 45, makes more than one-and-a-half-million dollars a year arranging hunting tours so that his wealthy clients can hunt exotic animals including endangered species. Are you feeling sick yet?

According to the Daily Mail, his clients can kill elephants, rhinos and lions and enjoy room, food, wine and daily laundry services. A ten-day hunting package starts at $5,000 which includes hunting a  wild wildebeest. Different exotic animals cost more money. Say you’re in the mood to hunt a zebra – fork out $21,000. Feel like killing a lion for $34,000, and the charges keep increasing as the species in the world decreases.

Now to get into the expensive killings. Want to shoot a white rhino  or an elephant? For five days, that hunt will cost some cowardly, rich hunter $55,000. That’s still not the ultimate hunting experience however. Ragozin will sell a hunter a week-long hunt for black rhinoceros for $550,000 – critically endangered animals. What the heck says Ragozin, who is of the conscience or lack thereof who claims killing wild exotic animals is good for them and benefits the wild animal population.

Ironically, Ragozin was trained as a doctor, so one would think he valued life no matter what the species, but the “crazy Russian” is all about the money, lamenting he didn’t make much of an income while being a physician. He now lives in South Africa and claims his trips are booked up to 2020. He claims his safaris in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Burkina Faso and Namibia  are all licensed and legal. Ragozin recently came into the spotlight after photos of his children – younger than teens were photographed on kills with him. Critics claimed he was encouraging children as young as eight-years-old, to hunt by charging them $5.00 a bullet to kill wild animals.

It is important to note the African elephant population has decreased more than 30% in the last ten years. A hundred years ago, the elephant population stood at ten million. Currently it is estimated to be only 400,000 left. According to the World Wildlife Organization, southern white rhinos in Africa are still alive in protected sanctuaries and are classified as near threatened. The western black rhino and the northern white rhinos have recently gone extinct. The only three remaining white rhinos are protected under 24/7 guard in Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.

Explain to us how hunting benefits the world wildlife population? Ragozin is a member of the Professional Hunters Association of South Africa, the Safari Club International and the International Professional Hunters Association. He is also friends with Sergey Yastrzhembsky, a former spokesperson to Vladimir Putin.

    Sounds like some environmentally friendly hunter needs to play “the most dangerous game” with this POS.

    No loss when he loses.

    What kind of work is this vile monster going to do when he wipes out all the exotic animals and no one wants to go on his safari’s to kill a certain animal? I am sure all these animal groups trying to protect them know who many of the big game hunters so maybe they could get to them before they schedule their safari and lay all the deaths of these animals and what it means to the remaining populations. Somehow someone or groups have to get through to these hunters that what they are doing will destroy these animals existence.

    Ragozin: I pray whatever justice to be had by the hands of God, that it finds you swiftly with the SAME treatment of EXTREME fear and violence causing a barbaric death, BUT 1 million fold WORSE! Because of Ragozin evil hand in raising God’s children with a taste for violence, I pray his children are thrown into poverty, staying in poverty until Ragozin is dead. Eye for an eye, ass wipe! Praise be to God for ALL His work to bring out the evil and raise up the faithful.
