Sometimes You Hunt, Sometimes You Are Hunted

From the NY Daily News: It was a fatal case of the hunter becoming the hunted.
Ian Gibson was trampled to death by an elephant that he was trying to kill for sport, reports the hunting website, Safari Classics.
Gibson was leading the hunt in Chewore North, Zimbabwe, when he spotted the bull elephant.
An experienced hunter, he tracked the elephant until he was just as little as some 150 feet away front the beast.
The elephant then turned and charged, trampling Gibson to death.
The death was announced by the Safari Classics website.
It wrote: "Ian was tragically killed by an elephant bull earlier today while guiding an elephant hunt in Chewore North."
It continued: "At very close range, Ian was able to get off one shot before the bull killed him. The scene was very graphic."
Gibson, a father, was hunting with a client, who was unhurt during the incident.
But his death received little sympathy online.
One person wrote simply: "Elephant 1 - scumbag 0."
So, the elephant decided that he wasn't going down easily and took on the hunter and the elephant won.
So, I don't feel sorry for the hunter- he took a big risk and lost.
If an elephant can kick the butt of a hippo, then the elephant can take on a hunter and their BB gun.
