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.
Theunis Botha, the well-known big game hunter, just had his last hunt.
The man was leading a group of hunters in Gwai, Zimbabwe, when they saw a herd of breeding elephants.
Sensing the danger, three of the animals stormed the hunters and Botha shot at them.
What the man didn’t see was a fourth elephant coming after him from the side…
The animal lifted Botha with her trunk...
... so one of the other hunters shot her, causing the elephant to collapse.
As she fell dead, the elephant dropped right on Botha, crushing the hunter to death.
The man pioneered European-syle ‘Monteria hunts’ in the region.
