German Hunter Kills Possibly the Largest Elephant in Zimbabwe

October 19, 2015 1 min read

An unnamed German hunter is at the center of the latest big-game hunting controversy, as it is reported that he paid $60,000 for a 21-day safari, which involved hunting elephants, buffalo, rhinoceros, leopards and lions. On this specific excursion, the hunter shot what is believed to be the biggest elephant in Zimbabwe. The hunt took place on October 8th in Gonarezhou National Park. The orchestrator of the hunt explained to The Telegraph that the kill was entirely legal, saying: "We hunters have thick skins and we know what the greenies will say. This elephant was probably 60 years old and had spread its seed many many times over." He also said that his company is well-aware of animal quota regulations and always obeys them. "This is good for Zimbabwe and good for local people. It’s not uncommon for hunters to spend $100,000 each trip," the unnamed man continued. Louis Muller, chairman of the Zimbabwe Professional Hunters And Guides Association, believed this elephant should have been wearing a collar in order to protect it from being hunted. He told The Telegraph, "We have suggested before to all concerned parties that each elephant area should collar a few with biggest tusks, so that we do not shoot them. Nobody responded to our suggestion last year. We believe this might now be taken seriously." Local conservationists and safari guides have lashed out in anger over the tragic death of such a beautiful creature. German man hunts and kills largest elephant in Zimbabwe.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS.
