Sometimes the elephant gets you
related link: Elephant crushes big-game hunter

Three elephants stampeded towards the hunters and Mr Botha opened fire with his rifle, prompting a fourth elephant to storm in from the side and lift him up with her trunk.

The Afrikaans news site Netwerk24 reported that another member of the group fired the fatal shot at the elephant and, as the animal collapsed dead, she fell on Mr Botha.

David Campo:

The hunters deserve whatever happens to them. Elephants are far more valuable than ignorant, hateful, asshole clowns with guns.

I'm not sure how they handle big game hunting in Africa, or the specifics of this case, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was necessary in many of Africa's national parks to cull populations that threatened to spill over park boundaries.

Culling takes place even in the western U.S., which has a low population density. Africa's population is exploding and they have many small farmers who live off what they grow.

Elephants are more valuable than assholes with guns. It is true now and will ALWAYS be.
