9gag.com claims,

Genghis Khan forbade the selling of women, theft of other's properties, decreed religious freedom, outlawed hunting during breeding seasons, and exempted the poor from taxation.

Genghis Khan

Is the claim that he "outlawed hunting during breeding seasons" true?

  • 9gag is missing other notable claims (e.g. enforced religious tolerance, etc....). – user5341 Nov 21 '16 at 15:51

    @tuskiomi It's not a duplicate. I deliberately split the 3 claims into two questions. – Sakib Arifin Nov 22 '16 at 8:10

    @tuskiomi What is that specific one claim? – Sakib Arifin Nov 22 '16 at 15:09

    A claim is a single claim, if it comes from a single article (especially if it's one of the sideshow websites) claims may be similar to one another, or even say the same thing (you can have multiple claims saying the same thing in a question as well. But only one main claim ), but if an article has multiple claims, 79% of the time, it belongs in the same question (100% if it's in the same sentence). – tuskiomi Nov 22 '16 at 15:16

    I think it should be 3 questions, not just 2 – DavePhD Nov 22 '16 at 18:56

According to Ecology for Millions, it was Kublai Khan, grandson of Genghis, who outlawed hunting of hare, does, stags and roebuck by kings and nobleman between May and October, which was breeding season.

In the Mongol Empire of Asia in 1259 the Great Kahn, Kublai Kahn, prohibited hunting through the game breeding seasons (March - September)

  • "Nobelmen"? Does that mean they could send out their servants? Or pay a commoner to do it? – fredsbend Nov 23 '16 at 10:01
  • @fredsbend I think it means no sport hunting, but hunting for necessity is ok – DavePhD Nov 23 '16 at 12:23
  • @DavePhD This was closed as a duplicate, so you may want to merge this with you answer on the other question. – called2voyage Dec 8 '16 at 14:50
