Big Game Hunter Crushed by Elephant Body

An expert big game hunter died this weekend in Zimbabwe after an elephant fell on him.

According to various news sources, Theunis Botha was leading a group of hunters when they accidentally came across a herd of elephant. Botha reportedly shot at three elephants who stormed, but was caught unaware by a fourth elephant coming from the side.

The fourth elephant picked Botha up, at which time another member of the hunting party shot the elephant dead. The body then fell on Botha, killing him in the process.

Botha’s body was moved to a nearby hospital mortuary on Saturday.
