Hunter Ian Gibson Trampled To Death By Elephant He Was Tracking To Kill For Ivory

Post by Irn Bru on Sat Apr 18, 2015 8:15 am

A professional game hunter has been trampled to death by an elephant he was attempting to kill.

Ian Gibson was leading a hunt in Chewore North in the lower Zambezi Valley of Zimbabwe, when the bull elephant “began a full charge. ”

In an online note on the website of his employers Safari Classics, the company explained Gibson had been tracking the elephant for five hours with a client when they stopped for a rest.

It adds: “Feeling he was quite close to the elephant, Ian and his tracker Robert continued to follow the tracks in hopes of getting a look at the ivory as the client stayed with the game scout.”

So the Elephant won. Tough sh!t on the guy but that's the chnce you take.

serves him bloody well right, ass hole

its one thing hunting "pest species" (and even better edible pest like rabbit )
its one thing hunting something like deer (culling) to maintain numbers and ensure a healthy herd, however "cruel" that might seem

it is entirely another hunting animals that are in low numbers for profit and so called "sport"

I mean if there were millions of elephants and they were seriously impinging on human activities they might be good reason.....but they are not doing so, they are relatively rare(and getting rarer) so

elephant 1 ass hole 0

It's hard to believe that there is still a market for ivory in 2015.  That's the real issue, no demand, no supply necessary Sad

As for the hunter, no sympathy. Karma

Sad Poor man. Laughing Bet he had a bit of a shock thinking he had the upper hand What a Face At least he will serve a good purpose now and feed the planet, as we all will one day. Smile In clay or dust.

My little elephant (without a trunk) bangs the living room door with his feet if he wants a crap, and he will get me out of bed real quick if he is desperate. He knows to darn much, more than I can put into words. He just communicates really well. Can't see him taking a banner and protesting yet, but give him time. Thinking of turning him into a chicken body guard, you know, giving him a real job, about time he earned his lentils, veg, garlic, ginger gravy and the odd clove, satsuma or banana, sometimes both, usually chunks of carrot, sometimes not. The conservatives gets free workers, bet they don't eat as good as mine. Do you think I could put a claim in for my child/elephant:?:

Anyway, you guys are a little on the strange side, I can only take so much strangeness these days. Back soon. bom Wink

One reason I dont generally do "driven pheasant "

although, since they are reared specifically for shooting and then ususally eaten (certainly every pheasant I have shot ) Its not really disimilar to chickens being raised for meat is it?

over here MOST "common folk" shooters (as opposed to a rare (and fortunately getting rarer) few "toff" shooters) strongly beleive in the ethic of "respect for quarry"

you take it as humanely as possible, to the point of foregoing a shot if its likely only to wound
you take only whats necessary for the task in hand
and if its reasonable to do so you put what you take into food...

(ok so we cant eat crows or foxes)

Love rabbits, lay off them or I'll hunt you Razz We should always protect and respect elephants they are just so beautiful and have wonderful loving natures, they will always be a bad egg. We sure have enough crass people.

Agreed on the rest.

I'm sure the partners and children of every dead psychopath, mass murderer, rapist, terrorist and child killer would be upset about things said about their twisted beloveds, nicko.

Have you never spoke ill of dead evil people nicko?

Perhaps they should have tried to talk him out of hunting animals instead of turning a blind eye.

Westerners who hunt in Africa are not poor nicko.

And it seems you miss the point- evil people who you have spoke ill of also had loved ones who never harmed anyone. Even bad people are loved by someone, that doesn't mean we should be nice about them if they die- especially if they were cruel in life, which Pol Pot, Mirah Hindley and elephant hunters are.

Do you speak ill of suicide bombers nicko? They have parents who love them you know.

You shouldn't ride an elephant, visit one of those parks (or circus) where they have elephant based entertainment or a zoo, for that matter.

Google 'why you shouldn't ride an elephant', as one example.

Free the elephant.

Nicko I'm not available every minute to reply you know.

Anyway that isn't the point- their parents perhaps weren't aware what their child was doing. The point is you would speak ill of them and not give a damn about their parents. So you are demonstrating double atandards.
