Received this from a PH a few days ago. Hesitated to post, but it's on other forums, so the cat's out of the bag. He wandered out of a park into a hunting area. I don't believe a bull this big has been killed in decades in southern Africa. Estimated 120# each side.


The PH is black, so maybe he'll get a pass. The media is scared to attack a black man, unless he says he's a Republican.

'Thought it might be of interest to some of you all. And some on here will say they wouldn't shoot an elephant, "have no desire to go there", etc. That's fine too. Elephant hunting is a complicated subject with mixed emotions for sure.

That's a big creature. The hunter can be glad it didn't have a name.

Sad that hunters are trying to hide stuff like this for fear of the media. Should be able to proud and not have to worry about offending

Here's the real tragedy:

26 MORE elephants poisoned in Hwange

The park where everything's wonderful and nice tourists enjoy beautiful animals and only evil American (white) hunters do anything wrong, like kill a cuddly lion. You won't hear a peep about this in the world media. The Chinese are raping southern Africa - timber, minerals, ivory, rhino horn. What are our youth (and our president) worried about? Global warming, I mean cooling, I mean climate change.

That would make a lot of boots and belts!

What happens with the animal? Locals get the meat?

Yep, locals will descend on that thing. I've been told you don't want to hang around and watch - stabbing from the outside, stabbing from the inside; a frenzy basically and a big potential for someone to get seriously hurt.

I had just a little meat from an elephant's temple, supposedly the most tender part, and it was probably from a bull 1/2 this guy's age. You'd have to be starving to eat very much of that. Thank goodness the locals' teeth are usually pretty good. They boil the hell out of it to try and break it down some I think.
