Elephant crushes Hunter to death

A South African big game hunter, Theunis Botha  died after being crushed by an elephant that had been shot on a game reserve in Zimbabwe, reports South Africa's News24 site.

Botha, 51, was leading a hunt with clients when the group accidentally walked into the middle of a breeding herd of elephants.

A source who did not want to be named told Netwerk24 that one of the hunters shot an elephant after she lifted Mr Botha with her trunk. The shot was fatal and as the elephant collapsed, she fell on Mr Botha and he died.
