|Wildlife justice: Did an elephant fight |
back againt a poacher, killing him?
Of course it's obvious that anyone who would ingest parts of a tusk from such a beautiful creature is anything but a he-man. You'd think nobody would want them as a sexual partner.
Often, the poachers who kill these animals get away with the crime and make a tidy profit from the scumbags who would buy from them.
So it was delightful to read the story of instant justice: A poacher was trampled by an elephant he was trying to kill, according to the Sunday Mail of Zimbabwe, via the Nothing To Do With Arborath Blog.
Hmm. I keep hearing stories about the intelligence and cooperative nature of elephants among their herds, so I have to wonder if this was pure instinct at work on the part of the elephant. Maybe the elephant has a well developed sense of justice.
