Big Game Hunter Was Killed When Shot Elephant Collapsed On Top Of Him

While leading a hunting trip on a game reserve in Zimbabwe, South African big game hunter Theunis Botha was killed when an elephant collapsed on him.

Botha, 51, guided his first hunt through the South African grasslands in 1989 as a college student. He used the money he earned from leading clients on hunting trips to pay for his college education.

In 1991, he earned a degree in psychology and anthropology and then began big game hunting full-time. Together with his wife, Carike, he started a hunting farm, and eventually established private hunting ranches in Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa.

Botha spent 28 years running his hunting tour business, which attracted numerous clients from around the world. On his website, the business is depicted as a “passionate and professional hunting outfitter operation focused on giving his clients a unique exciting African safari experience.”......

The Facebook post about his death led to mixed emotions among people, and while his fellow hunters responded with their condolences, calling him a “world-class houndsman”, many left harsh comments on the Bothas’ photos because of his profession as a hunter.

They're called "canned hunts" in the U.S., and they're reprehensible. Good on the elephant for taking this guy out.
