Theunis Botha is a well-known 51-year-old big game hunter from Johannesberg, South Africa. Hell, he was. Because he just had his last hunt. Call it karma, divine justice or anything of that sort, the elephant he shot dropped right on Botha, and the man died.

These kind of hunts use large packs of dogs to drive deer and boar towards them before opening fire on the animals.
