Ibex hunting in CH

I was shocked to see on the beeb that two Swiss cantons allow trophy hunting of ibex and chamois. I'm no greenie, but it doesn't seem right to me.

Hunting as a way to maintain a stable population and provide income from meat is one thing, but letting folks shoot the biggest males just to get their "trophy" goes way beyond my view of acceptable.

Seems that the Swiss WWF are trying to raise it in a referendum - no idea how that's going so far though.
