Elephant Falls And Kills Veteran South African Hunter

Veteran South African hunter, Theunis, 51, embarked on a journey of no return on Friday 19 May when he led a group of hunters in western Zimbabwe to Hwange National Park.

They ran into breeding herd of elephants that engaged Botha and the group, three of the elephants attacked them and Botha fired shot at the elephants unfortunately for him the fourth elephant came from the side and was lifted up with the elephant's trunk.

As Botha was lifted by one of the elephants, his fellow hunters fired shot at the elephamt, the elephant collapsed on him which led to his death. His body was moved to Hwange Colliery Hospital, Zimbabwe where his wife, Carike Botha is expected to identify his body on Monday and take him to South Africa.
