One hunter has found out exactly how dangerous animals can be after stalking this elephant in Zimbabwe.
Professional big-game hunter Ian Gibson was leading a tour in Chewore North, Zimbabwe, when the elephant he was tracking turned and trampled him to death.
Safari Classics website claimed:
It is with deep sadness to announce the passing of Chifuti Safaris professional hunter Ian Gibson. He was tragically killed by an elephant bull earlier today while guiding an elephant hunt in Chewore North.
The bull instantly turned and began a full charge. Ian and Robert began shouting in order to stop the charge. At very close range, Ian was able to get off one shot before the bull killed him. The scene was very graphic.
This news comes after a series of controversial stories recently went viral involving the hunting of wild animals including rhino in Africa.
A bunch of high profile celebrities including Ricky Gervais have been very outspoken on social media regarding the issues and awareness is being raised more than ever before.
