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.”
