"It was an easy and clear shot".

A big game hunter has paid $150,000 to travel to Pakistan and kill a rare goat.

'It is an honor and privilege to be back in Pakistan, ' Harlan told a local TV station. I am pleased to take this trophy, ' Harlan told Pakistani media.

However, some say this type of hunt should be outlawed, especially when it's rare animals like the wild Astor markhor. I saved the markhors for the last'.

The Astor markhor is a breed of goat that has large, flat and spirally horns.

The money goes to "development of the area", it was reported.

Since the trophy hunting program was instated, the markhor population has increased. The permits are auctioned and a trophy hunting license awarded the highest bidder.

Harlan can then be seen proudly high-fiving a companion before hauling the markhor to the ground.

Wawrinka prevails in tricky Rotterdam opener
Raonic had won the last three meetings, including a victory in the second round of this year's Australian Open . In the tie-break, Wawrinka stepped inside the baseline to gain the momentum.

Previously endangered, conservation efforts led to the animal being "downlisted" by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2014 and a special exemption for limited trophy hunting permitted.

The markhor (Capra falconeri) was considered endangered from 1994 to 2008, as per the International Union for Conversation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species (IUCN Red List).

Pakistan made local hunting of the animals illegal but allows foreign hunters to kill 12 male goats per season with a permit. The animal was shot dead during a tourist expedition to Gilgit-Baltistan, a northern Himalayan region in Pakistan.

According to Fox News, last month, two other Americans in two separate cases hunted down the animals after paying $105,000 and $100,000 respectively.

In the YouTube video, Harlan calls Pakistan a lovely country and says more people should visit.

"A Pakistani hunter, who was a guide for this and other hunts, told The Washington Post that "...these foreign hunters are millionaires who go back and tell the world that Pakistan is safe". "It's not risky. Mexico is more unsafe than Pakistan", Harlan added speaking at an impromptu press conference following the successful hunt.

".It is not risky. It's not risky. Mexico is more unsafe than Pakistan", he said. "I think that would do a great deal of good for this country".

According to his LinkedIn profile, Harlan earned an MBA in finance from Dallas Baptist University in 2004 after graduating from Texas Christian University in 1997 with a degree in finance and psychology.
