Professional big game hunter dies after elephant falls on him in Zimbabwe



A professional big game hunter was reportedly crushed by an elephant while hunting in Zimbabwe.

According to Netwerk24, the hunter was identified as 51-year-old Theunis Botha of South Africa.

Netwerk24 was told by a source that a group of hunters, including Botha, fired on three charging elephant cows on Friday. A fourth cow was said to have lifted Botha with her trunk. And when that elephant was fatally shot by another hunter, it collapsed on Botha.

Botha was a pioneer of Monteira hunting, in which packs of dogs are deployed to chase deer and boar towards hunters. Netwerk24 reported that he recruited wealthy Americans to participate in his hunts.

“Mr. Botha was a highly regarded houndsman and frequently led leopard and lion hunting safaris with his pack of dogs,” the Telegraph reported.

2. Rot in hell

I hope they lose his body on the way to the funeral home and wild animals find it.

I'm not against hunting, I used to in my younger days, and I've killed a couple million pounds of crab and tens of millions of fish in my fishing career.

But they were to be eaten, I now consider hunting for sport to be murder as it's not for food or sustenance/subsistence.

Just my opinion.

3. ITA

I have no problem with people who hunt for food. But I have no use for the jerks who consider it a "sport" to kill animals with guns or who do it to profit off their ivory or skins. No animal deserves to die for that.
