Depraved leftists across the globe are celebrating the death of a father of five who was crushed to death by an elephant during a big game hunt Friday in Zimbabwe.
Theunis Botha, owner of a South Africa-based safari company named Big Game Safaris and Hounds, was killed while on a licensed hunt with a client near Hwange National Park, the same park where Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer sparked an international uproar in 2015 after he fatally shot “Cecil” the lion.
Botha and his client were hunting when Botha “unknowingly” walked into a herd of elephants, a Zimbabwe wildlife official told the Associated Press. It’s unclear what the men were hunting for when they came across the breeding herd.
Unnamed sources told Netwerk24 that four elephant cows charged at the hunters, and one of the elephants managed to lift Botha off the ground with her trunk. The client then reportedly shot the animal, causing her to collapse on top of Botha, crushing him to death.
The lifelong hunter, 51, left behind a wife and five children in the South African town of Tzaneen.
The story is tragic, but not to crazed leftists who value animals’ rights over the unborn, or now, the born who dare to hunt.
Botha’s 21-year-old daughter, Carmen, posted several photos on Facebook memorializing her father, but her account has since been deleted or made private, presumably due to the harassment she’s received since the story went viral.
Entertainment website Heavy.com said Botha “got a taste of his own medicine.”
A headline by Yahoo7 News blared, “Big-Game Hunter Crushed To Death As Dying Elephant Takes Revenge.”
Global Animal, an online news magazine, lectured, “[N]o matter where you stand, let this tragic incident serve as a reminder of the power of Mother Nature and the risks associated with this cruel sport.”
“I’m not that broken up on it,” quipped The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur. “If you brag about how you’re a tough guy hunter your whole life and you get crushed by an elephant, well OK, in some ways it retroactively made your bragging worth it.”
“I’m more sad about the two elephants that were shot,” his female co-host chimed in. (Botha reportedly shot at another elephant before he was blindsided by the one that killed him.)
But that’s not even getting into the bowels of assholery that is Twitter:

I’ve had just about enough of people dancing on the graves of others due to their own political agendas. We’ve seen it enough today in light of the Manchester terrorist attack. People will stop at nothing to publicly place blame and spew hatred in a desperate attempt to feel validated.
There are no reports that say what Botha was hunting, but whatever it was, it was legal, and he paid the ultimate price for it. While liberals froth at the mouth to stories like this, a family somewhere is grieving a devastating loss.
