Celebrated game hunter Ian Gibson had been tasked by an American client to hunt elephants in Zimbabwe for their ivory. Gibson was well renowned amongst U.S safari fans and was often the man to go to for such large commissions. But, on this occassion, Gibson’s prey decided to fight back.

Gibson had spotted a baby bull elephant and was tentatively approaching in, to get a better assessment of the quality of it’s ivory. What Gibson should have known, was that the elephant was going through ‘musth’, a period of high testosterone. The baby elephant charged at the hunter and trampled him to death.

The Dallas Safari Group paid for Gibson’s funeral, offering their support for their fellow hunter and colleague. But what happened to the baby elephant? Unfortunately, Gibson had managed to complete his job as the elephant charged, shooting and killing the calf.
