I'm not anti-hunting, even for bull elephants. There's been research by orgs dedicated to the welfare of the animals that favor legal trophy hunting because it puts a very high value on the animals, employs many locals, and encourages them to treat their local wildlife as a resource to be protected instead of allowed to be killed by poachers who will saw off the tusks, sell them in the black market, etc.
But, yeah, when those who get their thrills by killing trophies are a victim of their prey, that's part of the deal they signed up for.
Killed an old giraffe, the twiteervesre erupted. Yet the animal was then used to feed locals.
If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.
If you hunt large animals than you have to accept the chance that it will kill you. Man already has most of the best tools needed for killing a large animal with little or no risk to themselves but in the rare times the animal strikes back then I am not that sad for the person who died.
Hunting to prevent a wild animal from hurting people or being a trouble animal that must be eliminated is one thing, hunting big game for ivory or pleasure is something that I disapprove of and if this guy was doing that and got killed in the process then tough luck for him.
Wilders is a piece of gutter trash, a gutless populist who has no morality to speak of.
Elephant 1, Hunter 0.
I'm sorry for him, but why should the elephant not have a fighting chance to save his life? Can't blame the elephant for doing what comes naturally to him.
