He Was Famous In The Big Game Hunting World, But An Angry Elephant Just Killed Him

Theunis Botha from Johannesberg, South Africa, was a well-known big game hunter who killed beautiful African wildlife for fun. Now he won’t get the chance to do it again.

On May 19, the 51-year-old, who had been leading tourists on hunting trips for the last 30 years, was out guiding a group of hunters in Gwai, Zimbabwe, when they saw a group of herding elephants. That’s when the animals charged.

On his website, Game Hounds Safaris, Botha is boasted as being the one who pioneered traditional European-style “Monteria hunts” in which hunters use hounds to herd wild animals towards them for an easier shot.

During these hunts, he’s killed leopards, lions, and even elephants.

But in his last hunt ever, a group of elephants must have known they were in danger, because they ran straight for the hunters to defend themselves before Botha shot at them.
