Original Message Elephant Tramples Suspected Poacher To Death
Posted: May 14, 2013

An elephant trampled a suspected poacher to death as the man tried to shoot the gigantic beast. The incident happened in Zimbabwe, where rangers found the bloodied remains of Solomon Manjoro.

Manjoro was thought to be on a poaching trip at the protected Charara safari area inside a national park. The local man was apparently charged by the elephant after he entered the game reserve for an illegal hunting trip.

The dead man had an accomplice in the botched poaching trip, 29-year-old Noluck Tarfuruka, whose first name, sadly, appeared to be perfect for the tripís outcome. It is believed that Manjoro and Tafuruka came into contact with the elephant after they entered the reserve at the end of April.

The pair were allegedly carrying unlicensed weapons when they faced the massive jungle animal and attempted to shoot it. Unfortunately, their plan was not perfect. Manjoro was killed when the animal failed to fall. Instead, it charged towards him. Tafuruka was later arrested by local police inside the Charara reserve.
