Australian MP kills elephant in Zimbabwe for fun and eats it

Published on : Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Australian MP kills elephantZimbabwe allows big game hunting of elephants where the majestic animals hunt is a legal practice. The thrill-kill of these, majestic animals attract many from around the world and one such person in a responsible position was a member of the New South Wales parliament belonging to the Shooters and Fishers party Robert Borsak.

 

 

Borsak not only admitted shooting an elephant during his African hunting tour, as he has photos that show the senator posing beside his big kill, but the man claims that he also ate the animal that he killed.

 

 

He was unabashed about what he did and defended his position by saying the he killed the “rogue, crop-raiding” animal that are not all endangered in Africa and a culled as part of a managed programme.

 

 

He said that he shot the elephant in a tribal area in the Zambezi Valley and ate the elephant in dried and cured form and as fresh cuts.

 

Bull elephant killed in Zimbabwe are a tourist attraction and hunters argue that regulated trophy hunting brings much-needed money into communities. The tens of thousands of dollars paid for the hunt, they say, filters into the local economy. However there are concerns that corruption eats into much of the revenue

 

According to the Zambezi Society, a conservation group, elephant populations in Zimbabwe have fallen dramatically in the past 15 years, particularly in the Middle Zambezi Valley, where there were around 11,500 elephants, down from 18,000 in 2001.

    For all the claims Aussies make about being a modern society, this is a shame, a slur. Wonder Aussies would react if this were done to the other beautiful animals of this earth, the Kangaroos or the cute Koala bears?

    Hey Aussie, where is your concern ‘maite’?
