Big game hunter killed when crushed by elephant

The incident happened in Hwange National Park on Friday, according to The Telegraph. Botha's specialty - if that's what you want to call it - was using hounds to hunt leopards and lions.

Theunis Botha, 51, died on Friday during a hunt near Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe when his group came into conflict with a group of breeding elephants.

Three elephant cows stormed the hunters and Botha shot at them. And well, that only prompted a fourth elephant to rush in on the hunters and lift up the 51-year-old with her trunk.
