Wounded Elephant Crushes, Kills Trophy Hunter

Wounded Elephant Crushes, Kills Trophy Hunter

An elephant cow crushed and killed a South African big-game hunter in Zimbabwe last week, falling on him after she was shot.

On May 19, Theunis Botha was leading a group in a hunt at Good Luck Farm near Hwange National Park when they stumbled upon a herd of breeding elephants, according to a report in the U.K. newspaper theTelegraph. Three elephants charged directly at the hunters, but a fourth elephant caught them by surprise as she charged them from the side.

That elephant picked up Botha with her trunk, and one of the hunters shot her, causing her to collapse on top of Botha. The elephant and Botha were both killed.

Elephants have been known to express emotions such as empathy, and some have even shown signs of grief over dead elephants. They have established societies within their herds and are capable of communicating with each other through subtle signs and gestures.
