Elephant Hunter Killed By Elephant He Was Trying To Kill

The ivory hunter has received little sympathy online.

Big-game animal hunting enthusiast Ian Gibson was killed recently after a “bull elephant” charged the man, according to Daily Mail. The incident took place in the Zambezi Valley after the hunter approached the animal to measure its ivory. Gibson, 55, managed to fire off a shot before the enraged elephant crushed him to death. Reactions to the incident have varied from the overwhleming “he got what he deserved” variety from the Twittersphere to the “he was a good man” rebuttals from his friends and family.
