Big Game Hunter Crushed To Death By Wounded Elephant

Big game hunter crushed by wounded elephantA South African big game hunter was killed by his own prey last weekend after an injured elephant fell on top of him.

Theunis Botha of Big Game Hounds Safaris was at Good Luck Farm near Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park on Friday when his group accidentally happened into a breeding herd of elephants.

When an elephant cow reportedly picked up the 51-year-old father of five with her trunk, one of Botha's clients opened fire.

But, instead of stopping a tragedy, the shot caused the elephant to fall and fatally crush Botha.
