“A South African big game hunter died after being crushed by an elephant cow that had been shot on a game reserve in Zimbabwe at the weekend.

Theunis Botha, 51, was leading a hunt with clients when the group accidentally walked into the middle of a breeding herd of elephants at the Good Luck Farm near Hwange National Park late on Friday afternoon, Zimparks spokesman Mr Simukai Nyasha said.

Three of the elephant cows charged the hunters. Mr Botha fired a shot from his rifle but he was caught by surprise by a fourth cow that stormed them from the side, the Afrikaans news site Netwerk24 reported.”

Edward Gorecki says:

Elephants are a big problem in other countries so they offer sport for them which brings good income.

Poor Hunter who supported their society and there poor family having to put up with idiots who know nothing making stupid comments because they are ignorant morons.

I'm Glad The Elephant Killed The Hunter Good on The Elephant

Ken Fyfe says:

Big game hunters that do it for "sport" should be forced to use spears, to be really fair

Kenai Dog says:

Your ignorance is starving Africa.

TheAngryGamer 89 says:

Well this is good news. Another piece of shit removed from the world,serves him right for killing such beautiful animals.

Truthseeker says:

I wish this happened every time these parties went out to shoot animals for fun.

Radar Zone says:

How would a so called big game hunter not know they aren't walking into a herd of elephants?  I mean, you would hear them from a distance away wouldn't you?  guessing this happened in the jungle cause otherwise they would have seen them and not walked right into them.   the game hunter got what he deserved but rest in peace for all the innocent elephants and to the previous victims of these loser people who think they gotta be bullies and hunt and kill with guns, to try and show some sort of strength and narcism over the creatures that they have to kill them for sport.


are you all not allowed to say, HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED….THE END oye and THE END…..word is he WAS an elephant poacher also…HEYO that's the RICH people SHIT…..tigers lions bears O MY…PS I think he has some rhino and he still rocking lil Johnson.

Good Riddance.

Chocomoose says:

Unless you have no other source of food, there is no 'need' to hunt to eat. We can farm enough free range gentle species that are humanely killed to provide a selection of meat. This man did this for pleasure and died for it. If you play with fire, you might just get burned.

kokitjoe says:

This dead hunter did more for elephants than any other person by paying to preserve them by paying thousands hunting one of them, I’m not for trophy hunting but it has more value than just watching and giving no money for the preservation of elephants.. also killing an animal with bare hands or spear is dumb and more painful for the animal. These talk show hosts know nothing.

Liss Anne says:

The only ones who should be able to ever hunt elephants are native Africans. There are tons of starving people there..children who are literally eating dirt to keep their bellies full. Then you see some rich, fat, white dude who is out there killing animals for a trophy. That’s just disgusting and wrong.

Liss Anne says:

Good. Live by the sword, die by the sword. That’s the way it goes. These trophy hunters feel so big and bad until an elephant trampled their ass.

Andy Metzger says:

All this info from 3 city slickers that have been fed from the silver spoon their whole life. Goofballz

Emile Stal says:

he got what they all deserves ..i don't feel bad for him

mp40jager says:

What a bunch of ignorant snowflakes. They have no clue about hunting or animal conservation.

Mop head says:

I heard his poopoo came through his mouth instead of his ass Lol.

Addick Kev says:

Shit happens !

pewdiepie id tv says:

Marcus Spears says:
