One hunter found out karma can be a powerful thing, after trying to poach for elephant tusks.
Ian Gibson was hunting the elephants in Zimbabwe, and things ended in the worst possible way for him.
The 55-year-old saw the baby elephant he was trying to kill crush him, but tragically, the elephant died as he had already been shot.
Gibson’s funeral is being paid for by the Dallas Safari Club, who he was hunting with, but it’s hardly much consolation for the poor baby elephant he killed.
Obviously his profession was controversial to say the least, and it’s fair to say there were a few people who weren’t too sad about his death, and of course they took to Twitter.
Brilliant. Some cunt who killed things for fun got killed by something he was planning on killing. https://t.co/nqMYcL47N7

I looked & can't find a photo of the baby elephant with its trophy. Funny how the other hunters forgot to take one https://t.co/pDTzoS9a8C
