A South African safari leader and #biggamehunter
was crushed to death Friday afternoon when an #elephant
was shot and fell and on top of him.
Theunis Botha, 51, was hunting with a group in Gwai, #Zimbabwe,
when they came across a breeding herd of elephants.
They quickly began to shoot, according to News 24, spooking the animals and causing the #elephants
to charge at the #hunters.

One of the elephants is then said to have picked up Botha with its trunk.
A member of his group shot the elephant, hoping it would put Botha down. Instead, the wounded and dying animal fell on top of him, crushing him to death.Botha was a highly regarded houndsman, and frequently led leopard and lion #huntingsafaris
with his pack of dogs for his company Game Hounds Safaris.
The website says he pioneered the traditional European-style 'Monteria hunts' in southern African countries.
He was a well known hunter in Zimbabwe, and often traveled to the United States to recruit #wealthyAmericans
to take part in #biggametrophyhunting
in Africa. #sorrynotsorry #bantrophyhunting #cowards #savewildlife #saveelephants #endtrophyhunting #ohwell #greed #selfish #animalkingdom
