Elephant Tramples Poacher, Saves Own Life

Authorities in Zimbabwe say that a suspected poacher was killed by an elephant after he attempted to shoot the animal.

Rangers found the body of Solomon Manjoro inside a national park, and believe he was attempting to poach in the protected Charara safari area. According to Zimbabwe’s Sunday Mail, Manjoro and an accomplice entered the park in mid-to-late April, with plans to hunt elephants for their ivory.

However, things didn’t go as planned for the poachers.

The Sunday Mail reports, “The poacher was recently trampled to death by an elephant after he failed to gun down the jumbo during a hunting expedition.”

It seems that when Manjoro and his friend, Noluck Tafuruka, finally tracked down an animal and attempted to shoot it, the elephant charged. Manjoro was killed in the incident and Tafuruka is now in custody, along with a third man suspected of involvement. The surviving pair appeared in court last week, where they faced charges of illegal weapon possession and contravention of local wildlife.

Sadly, pachyderm poaching has been on the rise lately, as the black market demand for ivory continues to increase. This elephant, perhaps knowing the danger he was in, protected himself. For the safety of everyone, we hope that other poachers get the not so subtle hint.
